Not saying it, but arguing it.

I think Germany handled their mistakes the right way. They didn't hide it or wash it from the history books. Their people have learned from it and I think the country is better for it. If only other countries followed suit.

so basically thought-policing. literally. whether you think its wrong to be a holocaust denier or not, doesnt change the fact that this law is fundamentally against freedom of speech and freedom of thought.

And in Poland it's illegal to say "polish concentration camp". You can literally go to prison for that - plus, if you are someone influential, Polish media would make a drama like you were the founder of every concentration camp ever in Nazi Germany and Soviet Russia

There are also laws in Germany and several other European countries about raising a hand in the Nazi salute. Don't do it there if you visit, even as a joke.

Could you get arrested for that, or would you just pay a fine?

There's some room to interpretation based on context, but in general, yes:
