Right-wing populism in Germany and a trip to Dachau
September 24, 2017, probably won’t go down in the history of the Federal Republic of Germany as a day of celebration. On this day, for the first time since 1949 a far right wing party, the so-called AfD (Alternative for Germany) made into the German parliament with a disturbingly good result of 12.6% of all the votes. About 5-6 million people have voted for this party. A trip to the Dachau Concentration Camp Memorial might help to put this disturbing new party into perspective.
