European Elections: Back to the 1930s as America Yawns

Richard Brodsky | Posted 05.27.2014 | World

In England, neither the Labor nor Conservative Parties won; in France the National Front came in first; in Greece and Hungary the neo-Nazi parties, Golden Dawn and Jobbik, made big strides.

I certainly hope the murders in Kansas City are the responsibility of a raving lunatic. Even if so, the evidence elsewhere should give us pause. And where Nazism raises its head, we should be there in opposition.

Anyone who dismisses the resurgence of Nazism in the former Soviet Union is, well, doing a disservice to the truth, historical memory and the Jewish community. The history and severity of anti-Semitism in Ukraine is of such enormity as to touch millions across the world.

Putin, Sochi and the New Russia

In spite of all, it may be in the world's interest to hope that the Olympics are successful, warts and all, not so much because we condone Putin, but because of what the games could do for the Russian soul.

Globally, World Without Nazism has identified more than 1,000 resurgent Nazi movements. While the U.S. has not been immune from outbreaks of terrifying right-wing violence, the real action is in Europe. There needs to be a carefully considered American response.

Dawkins and his fellows may remonstrate that what they object to is a belief system, freely adopted by its holders, but they are still participating in the unhealthy marginalization of a minority group.

On March 15 we had visited several sites of massacres, mass murders and concentration camps where hundreds of thousands of people had been shot or otherwise killed. The next day I'm standing face-to-face with someone who might have been there.

Nazis? Again? Really?

Most, but not all, European governments and political parties have opposed the Riga march. But as memory dims, too often the positions taken are based on the politics of the moment.

Golden Dawn has opened an office in Washington, and some of what we've heard from the Baltic states should give the State Department pause. Even the Timothy McVeigh's decision to bomb government buildings still resonates among some extreme right-wing groups.

Austerity Measures Are Worse at Easter

In the face of the U.S.'s two greatest crises of the century, Americans have turned to FDR and George W. Bush for solace. The Germans had once chosen Hitler for theirs. Which path will the Greeks venture down on May 6? Who can lead a country that has hit rock bottom?

Recently I learned about Article 116(2) of the 1949 German Grundgesetz -- Basic Law -- that restores citizenship to former Jewish Germans who had their citizenship revoked under National Socialism. But through a loophole, it does not include women.

We need to decide how much decades-old justice can be served in the courtroom. Not just because of the Nazis; they'll all be dead soon. But because the way we deal with crimes of war depends on it.
