Czech racist featured in German TV report says Romani people's "genetic code" must be "destroyed"
"The only solution possible is to destroy their genetic code. When their blood mixes, if they get more white blood in them, then they get a lighter coloring and more intelligence," the entrepreneur, infamous racist and trafficker in poverty Jiří Sieber of northern Bohemia describes his ideas about Romani people in a reportage produced by Germany's MDR television channel about the issue of social housing in the Czech Republic.
The program, called "Landlords cash in!", shows reporters traveling to the Chanov housing estate in the town of Most. Sieber shows them the location that he has chosen for a future "village" into which he intends to relocate Romani residents from Chanov and from the Janov housing estate in the town of Litvínov, where 30 % of all the apartment units are owned by the Krušnohor condominium association, which is associated with a political movement in Most calling itself "Most Residents for Most" (Mostečané Mostu).
That movement used precisely the slogan "We will build a village for the riff-raff" during their campaign in last year's local elections. The reportage indicates that if the Romani tenants were to move out of the apartments owned by Krušnohor, the condominium association would continue to make even more money from them, and demonstrates that the business is associated with local racists in politics, led by Sieber.
At the close of the reportage, Sieber shows the cameras his collection of objects related to genocide and racism across different historical periods, which he keeps in an old anti-aircraft shelter. He boasts about, for example, having examples of the weapons the neo-Nazis were carrying when they marched against Romani tenants in 2008 at the Janov housing estate, and a Zyklon B canister, and a model sailing ship, allegedly from the Nazi concentration camp of Dachau, where the sail is allegedly made of human skin.
The city of Most has been the center of attention ever since Czech Television launched a controversial comedy series ("Most!") set there at the beginning of the year that has broken records for Monday-night ratings. The town was visited earlier this week by Government officials and legislators, who toured Chanov.
