Germany: British neo-Nazis tweet photo of themselves giving the Nazi salute at Buchenwald

28.5.2016 8:36

Two members of a British neo-Nazi group have tweeted a photo of themselves giving the Nazi salute during a visit to the site of the former Nazi concentration camp at Buchenwald. German media drew attention to the case on 26 May and report that authorities are investigating.

The Bild daily reports that the British persons who immortalized themselves in the cellar of the former crematorium are members of the National Action organization, whose flag is also visible in the photograph. It is not yet clear exactly when the photo was taken.

The image was tweeted on 20 May. A criminal report against the two, whose faces are digitally distorted in the photo, has been filed by representatives of the memorial and museum in Buchenwald.

The room where the two photographed themselves previously served to warehouse corpses. As many as 250 000 prisoners passed through the entire camp, approximately 56 000 of whom died there between July 1927 and April 1945.
