Gathering of the European right-wing extremist movement

  1. 1. 13/14 February 2009, Dresden Gathering of the European right-wing extremist movement
  2. 2. Dresden – Platform for the largest yearly neonazi gathering On 13/14 February 2009, thousands of neonazis from Germany and Europe will gather in Dresden – as every year since 2004. The so called “moarning march“ is one of the largest marches of right-wing extremists in Europe. 6000 HALBE: ‘Remembrance of honour‘ 5000 WUNSIEDEL: ‘Rudolf Hess march‘ 4000 BUDAPEST: ‘Day of Honour‘ 3000 DRESDEN: ‘Moarning march‘ 2000 JENA: ‘Festival of the People‘ 1000 0 2004 2005 2006 2007 2008
  3. 3. “Bombing Holocaust“ On 13/14 February 1945, Dresden was bombed by the Allies. 25.000 people were killed, the city centre completely destroyed. The Nazis stylised the air raids as a crime of “anglo-american air gangsters“. Also the anti-imperialistic GDR ideology spread myths on the bombings. The propaganda of the “innocent city“ that was “senselessly destroyed“ was internationally adopted without questioning the context. In the beginning of the 1990s, Neonazis adapted the myth presenting Dresden as a “German Hiroshima“. The NPD referred to the city‘s destruction as a “bombing holocaust“, comparing the air raids to the murder of millions of Jews. This attempt of rewriting history relativises the Nazi crimes.
  4. 4. Silent commemoration?! Today, the city’s official remembrance concept – a “silent commemoration“ – intends to give a dignified frame to mourn the victims who died during the bombings. However, this “silent commemoration” lacks a clear stand against modern right-wing extremism and allows right-wing extremists to take over places and topics of remembrance. In February 2008, a group of Neonazis dominated NPD parliamentary group at the wreath- the “silent remembrance“ on the Heide cemetery. laying ceremony at the Heide cememtery.
  5. 5. Event for right-wing extremist networks Leading members of the so called “People’s Front from the Right“, including representatives from NPD, DVU and neonazi movements, gather in Dresden on 13 February 2005. The banner says: “Bombing terror – never again!“
  6. 6. Event for right-wing extremist networks Many international delegations participated in last years marches, including members of the “European National Front“.
