German rallies spark violence
Monday 31 January 1994
Demonstrators took to the streets of Berlin over the weekend, throwing stones at police and smearing buildings with paint in a protest against Germany's resurgent extreme right and death threats from right-wing radicals.
In Bonn, police banned a right-wing rally planned to mark Adolf Hitler's accession to power. Hitler became chancellor of Germany on 30 January 1933. Dierk-Henning Schnitzler, the president of police, regarded the rally, organised by the neo-Nazi Free German Workers' Party, as the 'most sordid provocation'.
