German Neo-Nazi charged over concentration camp tattoo

GERMAN prosecutors laid charges on Wednesday against a far-right local politician over a tattoo bearing a notorious Nazi concentration camp slogan and a picture of Auschwitz.

Marcel Zech, a 27-year-old council member of the National Democratic Party of Germany (NPD) in a town just north of Berlin, faces up to five years jail for inciting racial hatred, prosecutors told AFP.

Zech’s tattoo was photographed in November when he took his shirt off at a public swimming pool in Oranienburg, in the eastern state of Brandenburg which surrounds the capital. It features the German words “Jedem das Seine” (To Each His Own) -- the message at the front gate of the Buchenwald concentration camp — and a picture of the former Auschwitz death camp in occupied Poland with barbed wire fences.

Oranienburg is the site of Sachsenhausen, a Nazi concentration camp, where tens of thousands of inmates died.

Zech faces court next Tuesday, said the local newspaper Potsdamer Neueste Nachrichten.

Chancellor Angela Merkel’s government has labelled his fringe party the NPD, which is most popular in the formerly communist East Germany, “an anti-democratic, xenophobic, anti-Semitic, anti-constitutional party”.


Its just a tattoo not hurting anyone but the more the Leftist policies are similar  to Hitler the more the Leftists are frantic  to distance themselves from him.  And all the major parties in Germany are both socialist and Green, just like Hitler.  Only his patriotism  is missing among them.

His body is as equally offensive as his tattoos. Maybe the govt can tattoo his prisoner number on his forehead. That would give him some common ground with the Jews he despises. Personally he should have gone with the Auschwitz motto Work Will Set You Free. Can't figure how the was true unless you consider death to be freedom. In some countries today who are supposedly leading members of the UN non-western faction death would be a relief from reality.
