New Year’s Revelers Urinate on Holocaust Memorial in Berlin

By: JTA

New Year’s revelers shot fireworks and urinated in Germany’s Holocaust memorial in Berlin.

Reacting to a disgusting and shocking video that also explicitly showed a man urinating amid young party-goers celebrating among the 2711 stone slabs at the memorial last week, spokesperson Jenifer Stolz told JTA that “we are all quite appalled. But it is not the first time.”

She said she hoped it would be the last time, however. Meetings with Berlin police are planned in the coming days and weeks, at which possible measures to prevent the disrespectful behavior will be on the table. An obvious choice is to put up temporary fencing as is done for Berlin’s central park – the Tiergarten – which, like the memorial, borders on the party scene. But there also are other options to be discussed, Stolz said.

Berlin’s major open-air New Year’s event takes place around the Brandenburg Gate and hundreds of thousands of visitors walk past the memorial on their way there, Stolz noted. “It seems to invite them to such excesses, and it’s not nice.”

  1. Obviously it's starting all over again. In point of fact it probably never entirely ended. Kind of like a virus; if you don't get all of it, it's likely to raise it's ugly head again. The question is, what are we going to do now?

  2. Ian Wright says:

    Really, did you expect any different? Many Germans resent that monstrosity in the middle of their capital city and protest it's presence by pissing there. Contrary to what you might think, many of them believe the holocaust was a good thing.

  3. chermins. still putrid after all these years.

  4. Les Le Gear says:

    They're all nazi barbarians in their hearts

  5. Alan Kardon says:

    Put them all in a pen near the memorial and urinate on them. Keep them there tell they get the message.

  6. The memorial reminds us of what happened. The actions of the reveler remind us why we should never forget what happened can happen again.

  7. Bleery drunken Louts! I hope the German authorities are going to put a fence around it now – and long overdue it certainly is!

  8. Bill Wingard says:

    They should put up a hidden electric fence, that would fix everything

  9. Jack Kuper says:

    What did you expect ? Museums, memorials , klezmer concerts and the like, is simply pulling the wool over our eyes. Leave the beasts to drown in their own venomous hatred !
