05:52 am | Criticism of “crude trivialization” by “lateral thinker speakers
The anti-Semitism commissioner of the federal government, Felix Klein, has sharply criticized equating the “lateral thinking” movement of current corona restrictions with the persecution of Jews during National Socialism. “The increasing comparisons of protesters against the Corona measures with victims of National Socialism mock the actual victims and relativize the Shoah,” he said in an interview for the “RedaktionsNetzwerk Deutschland”.
The Holocaust is not a decal for any feelings of victimization.
Rather, the latest statements by speakers in Hanover and Karlsruhe showed how important education is. “Anyone who is well informed about Anne Frank and Sophie Scholl will hardly utter such crude trivializations.”
