"Radical artists build replica Holocaust memorial outside right-wing AfD leader's home"

The activisis said they had not broken any laws, and had erected the replica of the monument as “garden decoration” on their own property. They notified the police in advance.

They said they have also been using the property to mount a “citizens’ surveillance” of Mr Höcke for the last ten months, in protest at the failure of the authorities to investigate him.

They offered to end the surveillance if Mr Höcke kneels before the monument in recognition of the crimes of the Holocaust, as former chancellor Willy Brandt famously did in Warsaw.
