Anti-refugee flyers placed inside Berlin memorial to child refugees of WW2

RIAS report that a collection of publicity fliers for the right-wing, anti-refugee group “Bürgerbewegung Pro Deutschland” (Civic Initiative for Germany) were placed within the Refugee Children Movement memorial in the Friedrichstraße area of Berlin.

The memorial commemorates the rescue effort that took place during the nine months prior to the outbreak of the Second World War, when the United Kingdom took in nearly 10,000 predominantly Jewish children from Germany, Austria, Czechoslovakia, Poland, and the Free City of Danzig.

The flyers were placed inside an open suitcase represented in the sculpture. In December, flyers from “B.Ä.R.G.I.D.A”, the Berlin branch of Pegida, were also found there.
