German Foreign Minister slams protestors for comparing themselves to Nazi victims

The anti-mask protesters who compared themselves to Nazi victims, for trivialising the Holocaust and the courage of resistance fighters have been slammed by German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas.

Taking it to the micro-blogging site, Twitter, Maas tweeted, “Anyone today comparing themselves to Sophie Scholl or Anne Frank is making a mockery of the courage it took to stand up to the Nazis. It trivialises the Holocaust and shows an unbearable forgetting of history. Nothing connects the corona protests with the resistance fighters. Nothing!”

The protestors have been staging demonstrations throughout the country for the government imposing COVID-19 restrictions with a new shutdown put in place for November.
