Eventual Success for Neo-Nazi Youth? Germany’s Inner War, Part 3

  As much as Germany tries ignore its problem with Neo-Nazis, its population seems to be more drawn to the ideology of their many semi-forbidden groups.  And German youth are even more so drawn to join their organizations.

Trying to hold back the tide, the German government just banned its largest Neo-Nazi association, the Help Organization for National Political Prisoners and Their Families (HNG).  But it will not be as easy to stop Hilterized thinking there.

Founded 33 years ago, HNG has about 600 known members.  A charity organization, it tries to help those who are imprisoned for the ultra right wing views.  But the government denies the group has charitable purposes.  BBC News quotes The Interior Ministry that the group is “racist, anti-Semitic agenda, was a threat to German society and the constitution.”

Neo-Nazis seem especially adept in attracting Germany’s youth.  Hajo Funke, a Neo-Nazi expert says: “Young men are attracted because there are no alternatives in the village except this group who are aggressive, who are male, chauvinist and dominating the scene.”

CBN News reporter, Dale Hurd says, “A recent report revealed one out of twenty 15-year-old German boys belong to a neo-Nazi group––a number no other political party can claim.”  Because they deny a problem exists, main stream political parties apparently see no need to train youth in democratic principles.

According to Hurd, “The legal and political arm of the neo-Nazi movement is the National Democratic Party or NPD.”  A former NPD member said that the group wants “restoration of the Third Reich.”  He adds, no matter what NPD members say in public, they “privately praise Nazi Germany and the Holocaust.”

Restore the Third Reich!  Hurd also claims that the number of Germans who agree with that thinking is much larger than the government wants to admit, and that “neo-Nazis in eastern Germany are trying to run their own kindergartens.”

Bernd Wagner, founder of a group called EXIT-Germany which tried to help Neo-Nazis get out of the movement, says “There is an increase of neo-Nazis and organized right-wing extremists.  Plus there is a tendency in the population of sympathizing with their ideas and ideology which is also increasing.”

In a summary of Germany’s identity, BBC News writes:  “The pain of Germany’s Nazi-era history remains a sensitive element in the country’s collective modern-day psyche.”  And those indoctrinating Germany’s youths in Neo-Nazi ideology know that, apparently much better than its government.

Brotherhood of the rose illustrates that diligent teaching of children can produce criminals, murderers and even extreme right wing Nazis.  And the Bible agrees:  “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it (Proverbs 22: 6).”
