Man brazenly declares “Jews should be gassed!” in upmarket German bar

A journalist has reported that she was enjoying a drink in an upmarket bar in Hamburg’s Nobelviertel district on Saturday night, when a smartly-dressed fellow patron remarked that “Jews should be gassed.” She reports that she replied that she is Jewish and asked if he would therefore also like to murder her. He replied, “In that case, yes!”

In her blog entry on this incident, the journalist notes the confidence with which the person made his anti-Jewish remark. She remarked on the ease with which such genocidal statements become less and less controversial in polite German society.
