Adolf Hitler’s reign left millions dead, and Germany in ruins – but it seems that young Germans are ignoring the lessons of the past.
As thousands of neo-Nazis flocked to a rock festival in the tiny town of Themar, German far-right supporters were pictured in ‘I love HTLR’ T-shirts.
Others wore T-shirts saying, ‘HKN KRZ’ – a reference to the ‘Hakenkreuz’, or Swastika.
The festival called, ‘Rock gegen Ueberfremdung’ (Rock against Foreign Domination) saw up to 6,000 neo-Nazis attend, with 1,000 police officers deployed.
The neo-Nazis were cordoned off, RT Reports, and visitors had to pass security checkpoints guarded by police.
The concert was largely peaceful, but the police were involved in 20 incidents including ‘the use of anti-constitutional symbols’ – possibly referring to Nazi symbols.
