Germany Bans Far-Right Group That Tried to Indoctrinate Children With Nazi Ideology

The German government on Wednesday banned a far-right, racist group known for its indoctrination of children as police raided dozens of homes of its members and other buildings early in the morning.

A statement from the German interior ministry said it banned the Artgemeinschaft group, an anti-democratic association with around 150 members. All of its sub-organizations, including the Gefaehrtschaften, Gilden, Freundeskreise, and Familienwerk e.V., were also banned, the ministry said.

“The group’s central goal was the preservation and promotion of one’s own ‘kind,’ which can be equated with the National Socialist term ‘race’,” according to the statement.


The group gave its members instructions on how to choose a “proper spouse” within the Northern and Central European “human kind” in order to pass on the “correct” genetic makeup according to the association’s racist ideology. {snip}
