A group of antifa "artists" say they have erected a Holocaust memorial outside the home of a nationalist politician, who suggested Germany should end its tradition of acknowledging the “crimes” of the country's National Socialist past.
The Center for Political Beauty said Wednesday its members placed 24 concrete blocks on a property adjacent to the home of Alternative for Germany lawmaker Bjoern Hoecke in the village of Bornhagen.
The concrete blocks are modeled after those at a memorial in Berlin to the six millions Jews.Stay Connected With Us
Hoecke caused jewish outcry in January by describing the capital's memorial as a "monument of shame" and calling for a "180-degree turn" in Germany's treatment of its past.
Prominent members of Alternative for Germany who wanted Hoecke expelled over the comments have since left the party.
