Adolf Hitler - My Fake Diary
Friday, 7 September 2012
Hello, this is interesting that I read in England's newspaper the Mirror:
Terrifying rise of the Fourth Reich: Fears Germany is losing its battle with neo-Nazi menace!
For restaurant owner Uwe Dziuballa, every year from early March the phone calls come with chilling regularity - callers try to book a table for Adolf Hitler for April 18 - the Fuhrer's birthday.
Since Uwe opened his Kosher restaurant in the eastern German city of Chemnitz in 2000, he has endured hatred and abuse - from pigs' heads nailed to his door, to "You Jew pig" screamed down the phone and people urinating through the letterbox.
Uwe's plight is just a ripple in a rising tide of neo-Nazi hatred in Europe's most powerful nation.
Seven decades after the downfall of the Third Reich and over 20 years since reunification, Germans seem blind to the dangers.
"After an estimated 180 racist killings in Germany since unification in 1990, after countless assaults, cases of intimidation... the conclusion has to be that Germany is losing the battle against the violent far right," said authoritative news magazine Der Spiegel this week.
This week German commentators have been reflecting on the rise and rise of those who dream of a Fourth Reich - because this week marked a terrible anniversary.
It is 20 years since right-wing thugs hurled petrol bombs and bricks at an asylum-seekers' refuge in the Baltic port of Rostock.
While dozens of extremists were responsible, police and firemen had to retreat in the face of a thousands-strong mob of ordinary people who cheered them on.
Two decades on, some Germans are taking stock of the neo-Nazi menace and can draw little comfort from what they see.
He he he!
