On the commemoration day of the victims of National Socialism, North Rhine-Westphalia's Prime Minister Hendrik Wüst (CDU) called for resolute opposition to attempts to relativize and trivialize the Holocaust.

In the middle of Germany and NRW, demonstrators against the corona measures were wearing yellow stars with the inscription “unvaccinated”, said Wüst on Thursday in a commemoration of the state parliament.

Düsseldorf – Other demonstrators compared their rejection of the Corona measures with Sophie Scholl’s resistance to the Nazi regime.

"This arrogance in relation to the victims of National Socialism is repulsive and intolerable," said Wüst.

Wüst demanded that civil society must oppose anti-democratic positions and inhuman ideologies.

"We must not remain silent." In recent years, it has increasingly given the impression that anti-Semitism is becoming more and more blatant and has almost become socially acceptable.

"Not every incident is punishable, but every anti-Semitic or racist statement is an attack on our open and diverse society," said Wüst.

January 27 has been a day of remembrance for the victims of National Socialism in Germany since 1996.

It is the anniversary of the liberation of the survivors of the German death camp Auschwitz in 1945 by soldiers of the Red Army.
