American Tourist In Germany Does Nazi Salute, Gets Beaten Up

13 Août 2017

Authorities say a tourist from America was punched in Germany after allegedly displaying the Nazi salute.

On 5 August, two Chinese tourists were caught taking photos of themselves making the gesture in front of Berlin's Reichstag building. The tourist, who sustained minor injuries, was apprehended by police, although the attacker fled the scene and remains at large.

An American tourist in the German city of Dresden was punched by a stranger after the tourist gave the Nazi salute in public multiple times, local police say.

Ivanka Trump said the things her father wouldn't on Charlottesville
She says the attack was a reminder that evil still existed in the world but she remained confident Americans would be united. Addressing reporters, Trump refused to name white supremacists or any specific group, blaming the violence "on many sides ".

The tourist was heavily intoxicated and had a blood alcohol level of 0.276 percent.

The American is now under investigation for violating Germany's blasphemy laws which are very strict when it comes to anything related to Nazi symbolism.

The American also had insignia of "unconstitutional organizations, which includes Nazi symbols", Deutsche Welle reported. The duo was arrested but was eventually released after paying a fine of about $1,000. Germany outlawed the salute after World War II, along with Holocaust denial and other symbols and signals associated with the Nazis.
