German far-right politician Marcel Zech was found guilty of incitement for showing a tattoo of what appeared to be the Auschwitz death camp while visiting a swimming pool.
A court in Oranienburg handed Marcel Zech a suspended six-month sentence.
German news agency dpa reported that the 27-year-old admitted displaying the tattoo with the slogan from the Buchenwald concentration camp’s gate, “Jedem das Seine” — “to each his own” — at a pool on Nov. 21.
Another bather took a photo of the tattoo and passed it on to authorities.
Prosecutors had asked for an unsuspended 10-month sentence for Zech for violating the country’s ban on the public display of Nazi symbols. The defendant is a member of the far-right National Democratic Party, sits on the Barnim county council near Berlin and has a previous conviction for bodily harm, dpa reported.
