Neo-nazis protest March of the Living

Neo-Nazi demonstrators protested the March of the Living in Krakow, according to a Jewish organization.During the March of the Living, 200 people participated in an April 14 march staged by the far-right National Radical Camp, a tiny extremist group. The participants held “Heil Hitler” signs and shouted “This is Poland, not Israel,” “Poland is a saintly thing” and “Jews out of Poland,” according to the Warsaw-based Foundation for the Preservation of Jewish Heritage in Poland.The demonstration in Krakow Market Square took place amid foreign tourists, including Israelis who were in Poland for the March of the Living, the foundation reported. The foundation complained that police did not stop the demonstration, despite the Nazi slogans, which are illegal in Poland. The demonstrators reportedly were outnumbered by 250 anti-racism protesters led by local nongovernmental organizations.
