    How serious is the nazi problem in Germany?

    I know people who went to Germany recently to a gymnastics event and they were given an identification card that gave them free access to public transportation, museums, some restaurants and other stuff, but because these people I know have jewish-rooted last names they were advised to ommit them in this identification card for fear they could be harassed by gangs.

    I was really surprised by this.

    Of course they refused to ommit the name and nothing happened, but the fact this sugestion was given must mean the authorities fear something.

    It is only really bad in the Eastern part which was under Soviet rule. That is not to say that in the West, there is no such presence but it is minuscule in the sense that you are more likely to be killed by a gang in London than Munich. But in the east where economic development is struggling to take off and even after unification some part of population(tiny) retained resentment towards the West. This mingling of social and economic factors have led to maintenance and somewhat increase in the Neo-Nazi movement in eastern part.

    all it takes is for a bad economic downturn and they will be scapegoating immigrants and Jews.

    Should be dealt with right now.

    It's hard to understand that Neo-Nazism is so strong in Russia. I can see why anti-immigrant tendencies were common, but Neo-Nazism in particular? Never mind that the Soviet Union essentially defeated Nazi Germany, or that one of the common Nazi hatreds was to towards the "slavic hords".

    Ignorant people.
