New German Agency Set Up to Combat Neo-Nazi Propaganda

A new German agency tasked with advising local authorities on how to counteract neo-Nazis was announced in Berlin Tuesday, two months after the exposure of an anti-immigrant gang that has been blamed for 10 deadly shooting.

Germany Family Affairs Minister Kristina Schroeder said the information and skill agency would be a one-stop source of advice to municipalities seeking ways to check neo-Nazi recruiters.

She spoke after a day-long meeting in Berlin with church activists and youth workers.

A survey this week funded by parliament suggested many German schoolchildren use “Jew” as a term of abuse and 20 percent of Germans are latently anti-Semitic.
