USA - Neo-Nazi group gathers in front of New England Holocaust Memorial in Boston

Boston, MA
- A neo-Nazi group recently gathered in front of the New England Holocaust Memorial, a “disgusting and despicable” demonstration in Boston while there has been a dramatic increase in antisemitic violence across the country, the Anti-Defamation League’s regional leader tells the Herald.

Members of the Nationalist Social Club on Sunday stood in front of the New England Holocaust Memorial across from City Hall Plaza. Holding flags, members of the white supremacist group took a photo in front of the memorial, and posted the picture on the social media site Telegram.

“This is the kind of thing they like to do. They like to be provocative and want to spread hate, anti-Semitism, and they try to incite people,” said Robert Trestan, ADL New England’s regional director.
