November 23 2017 – A group of activists unveiled a replica of Berlin’s Holocaust Memorial secretly erected outside the home of a far-right AfD politician who says Germans should stop atoning for Nazi guilt.

Art collective Centre for Political Beauty set up 24 large concrete slabs in a garden next to Björn Höcke’s house, saying it wanted to send a daily reminder of the second world war horrors that led to deaths of 6 million Jewish people.

“We are doing our neighbourly duty,” the group’s leader, Philipp Ruch, told the Frankfurter Rundschau newspaper. “We hope he enjoys the view every day when he looks out the window.

”The slabs are a smaller-sized replica of the famed Holocaust Memorial in Berlin, which consists of a solemn field of 2,700 grey blocks meant to evoke a cemetery.

The leading Alternative for Germany (AfD) member Höcke provoked outrage in January when he labelled the tribute to the victims a “monument of shame in the heart of the capital” and urged Germans to focus less on their war guilt.
