For those of us from the West who might plan to be going to Germany, this seems like the perfect town to avoid.
Perhaps when the town elders see income from local shops plummet they may change their mind.
The bell, which is inscribed with a Nazi swastika and words that state “Everything for the Fatherland – Adolf Hitler,” serves as a memorial in a Protestant church in Herxheim am Berg.
According to the DPA news agency, the council in the small town voted 10-3 on Monday to preserve the bell, which were widespread during the Nazi era but mostly removed after the war.
A move they will eventually regret.
