Argentinean Selling Nazi Symbols Ordered to Perform Community Service

Thursday, February 20th, 2014

A Buenos Aires city court is requiring a vendor of Nazi souvenirs and symbols to perform community service and take a course about the Holocaust.

City prosecutor Gustavo Galante collected evidence in the case with the help of the Anti-Discriminatory Division of the Federal Police. The seller, who has not been publicly named, sold Nazi souvenirs and symbols in Argentina and abroad. They were offered in Argentinean currency as well as in dollars and euros.

Judge Fernanda Botana made his ruling following a plea agreement struck with the sellers’ lawyers.

The seller must perform 40 hours of community service through a charitable organization, take a course about the Holocaust at the Holocaust Museum of Buenos Aires and take a course about tolerance at the National Institute Against Discrimination.

The prosecutor told local media that the unnamed settler acted alone and is not a member of the Nazi party or another neo-Nazi organization.

Argentina has had an anti-discriminatory law on the books since 1988.
