Elderly German man spits at Spanish tourists, wishes more Jews died

A group of Spanish tourists was harassed by an elderly man at a bus station after a trip to Berlin’s Platform 17 Holocaust memorial.

The man began to denounce the number of “dirty Jew monuments” present in Berlin and, in addition to spitting at the group, made statements in support of Hitler and the Holocaust. He also told the tourists that his family was involved in the gassing of Jews and that he wished that more Jews had been murdered.

The bus driver, who saw the entire exchange, encouraged passengers to board the bus and to leave the man alone.
