Football supporters chant notorious Auschwitz song in Dortmund

On Friday night, a group of six football supporters, aged 18-24, sang the infamous, antisemitic “U-Bahn Lied” [Underground Song] in front of Dortmund’s main train station in Germany. The song describes building an underground train line “from Jerusalem to Auschwitz.”

Police intervened at approximately 00:30 and demanded that the group desist. The group responded negatively and were taken in for questioning. They are now facing police investigation.

One member of the group, a Dortmund local aged 24, whose blood alcohol content measured 1.7 g/L, attacked an officer.  He now faces additional charges. The officer in question received injuries to his chest and arms.
