Germany Protesters build Holocaust memorial at home of far-right German politician

In January, the leading "Alternative für Deutschland" (Alternative for Germany) politician called the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin a “monument of shame in the heart of the capital”.

Now, activists have rented the garden next to his home and erected a small replica of the monument.

The Guardian:

Quote:
“We are doing our neighbourly duty,” the group’s leader, Philipp Ruch, told the Frankfurter Rundschau newspaper. “We hope he enjoys the view every day when he looks out the window.” (...) “He will now have to deal with the fact that he has neighbours who don’t consider the Holocaust Memorial a ‘monument of shame’, but who try to remember what had happened, to prevent it from happening again,” Ruch told the daily.
I'm going to donate to their crowdfunding campaign...
