Nightmare No 3: Deutschland Uber Alles – ΑfD proud of Adolph Hitler.

Co-founder of far-Right AfD party says Germany should be proud of its Second World War soldiers

One of the leaders of the anti-immigrant Alternative for Germany party (AfD) has provoked outrage after he called for Germans to “reclaim their past” and be proud of the military achievements of the Nazis.

Alexander Gauland, one of two joint leaders of the AfD campaign ahead of German elections in a week’s time, told supporters that if Britons can be proud of Winston Churchill then Germans have can “be proud of the achievements of German soldiers in two world wars”.

“No one has so thoroughly cleansed themselves from the wrongs of the past as the Germans,” the 76-year-old told a campaign event in the eastern state of Thuringia.
