AfD Walks out of Munich Holocaust Tribute to Holocaust Victims

The Washington Post reports that more than twelve state lawmakers from Germany’s the Alternative for Germany (AfD) party walked out of the Bavarian parliament during a tribute to Holocaust victims after 86 year-old Holocaust survivor Charlotte Knobloch, the former head of Germany’s Central Council of Jews, called the party out by name, saying the AfD has downplayed the crimes of the Nazis and has close connections to the extreme right.”

Lawmakers from other parties gave Knobloch a standing ovation.
