Protesters denounce AfD supporters at Holocaust memorial event

Marzahn, Berlin - A group of protesters tried to confront the supporters of the right-wing Alternative for Germany (AfD) at the commemoration event in memory of the victims of the Holocaust in Berlin's Marzahn district on Saturday, just two days ahead of the International Holocaust Remembrance Day. 

The protesters who denounced the presence of the AfD supporters were filmed marching and later trying to break through the police cordon with flags of the Auschwitz concentration camp and placards reading "No space for far-right agitation." 

The demonstration was organised by the Union of Persecutees of the Nazi Regime and the Antifa movement under the motto "No commemorations to the Nazi victims with the AfD."
