NAZI ITEMS RE­MOVED FROM MIL­I­TARY BASES

Windsor Star - - WORLD -

A mu­ral of sol­diers in full Nazi re­galia found at a Ger­man mil­i­tary bar­racks has been painted over.

It is one of more than 40 pieces of Nazi-era mem­o­ra­bilia be­ing re­moved from mil­i­tary bases.

The lo­ca­tion of the mu­ral is jeal­ously guarded by the de­fence min­istry, helmed by min­is­ter Ur­sula von der Leyen, pic­tured above.

The cleanout is part of a wider purge or­dered af­ter a far-right ter­ror cell was dis­cov­ered within the army. Two sol­diers are un­der ar­rest on sus­pi­cion of plan­ning to carry out a “false flag” ter­ror attack and blame it on Mus­lim refugees.
