The demonstrations on Sunday were held under the banner “One Europe for Everyone: Your Voice Against Nationalism” in cities including Berlin, Cologne, Leipzig, Frankfurt, Munich and Hamburg.
“I am here because I don’t want to relive what a national-socialist party already did during my lifetime. That should never happen again,” said 74-year-old Renate Foigt, referring to the ideology of Nazi Germany.
“I hope more and more people take to the streets to say ‘Stop’.”
