The Express has revealed footage purporting to show German children attending a summer camp run by far-right groups in Sweden.
The footage shows children in the woods dressed in uniforms with Sturmvogel logo. Sturmvogel is a far-right group founded in 1987 and apparently has links to Nazism and Holocaust denial. They also have links to the banned groups Wiking-Jugend and Heimattreue Deutsche Jugend.
The camps are structured in a quasi-militaristic manner, with children expected to stand in silence and salute the flag until they are dismissed.
The group holds its camps in Sweden to avoid German counter-extremism laws.
Andrea Ropke, a German expert on the far right, notes that the children are sent to the camps by their parents: “Nationalist youth education is very important to them and the camps are an important part of the business”.
