How to be a German Neo-Nazi Girl


Nazi Germany anti-semitism hate racism xenophobia

Irma Grese’s son also played a crucial role in her decision to leave the stinking swamp of Nazism behind.

They wondered if she would talk and reveal the long-sought-after secrets of these extremist groups.  (more...)
