Holocaust memorial director welcomes move to exclude AfD from Bergen-Belsen board

The far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) is set to be excluded from a foundation that oversees the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp memorial.

The director of the foundation that oversees the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp memorial has greeted a proposal that would bar members of the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) party from serving on its board of trustees. "The AfD is a revisionist party that does not conform to our purpose of honoring the victims," Jens-Christian Wagner, the head of the Lower Saxony Memorials Foundation that oversees the camp site, told DW.
