Germany shuts down far-right website promoting antisemitism, Nazism and Holocaust denial


Germany has banned a far-right website, Altermedia Deutschland, reported to promote material of a “racist, xenophobic, homophobic, antisemitic and anti-Islamic” nature.

Raids were carried out on homes in four German states and a town in Spain. Two German people have been arrested on suspicion of incitement and founding a criminal organisation.

Material promoted by the site included Nazi slogans, Holocaust denial and incitement of violence towards foreigners.

The head of Germany’s domestic intelligence, Hans-Georg Maassen, told reporters, “There is the danger of a grey zone developing between far-right extremists, right-wing conservatives and citizen protesters with significant potential for violence.”
