Auschwitz Sign Stolen to Allegedly Fund Neo-Nazi Terrorist Plots

January 8, 2010 /EIN PRESSWIRE/ The “Arbeit Macht Frei” sign stolen from Auschwitz by Polish neo-Nazis was to be sold in order to raise funds for disrupting Swedish elections, according to Anders Hoegstrom, founder of the National Socialist Front in Sweden and confessed middleman in the failed sale of the sign.

According to The Times, Hoegstrom said that he turned himself in after he learned that the proceeds of the sale were to be used in a possibly violent plot to disrupt this year’s election in Sweden. SaePo, Sweden’s intelligence agency, confirmed that it is investigating neo-Nazi plots to blow up the Swedish parliament and the home of the prime minister.

Neo-Nazis across Europe have used the threat of violence, if not violence itself, to establish a foothold across the continent in the last 10 years, but as the scope of the violence escalates, will EU countries need to treat this group in the same manner that they treat terrorists?
