“My father fought Hitler and Mussolini but I’ll vote Chrysi Avgi” — Greek voter


Turmoil in Greece continues to trouble the world’s economy and Europe’s union. It’s also bringing up bad memories of the Nazi era. In Greece, the Nazis murdered or starved 300,000 Greeks and destroyed one of the largest and most prosperous Jewish communities in the world. The country took years to recover. Yet last Sunday seven percent of Greeks voted for Chrysi Avgi (Golden Dawn), a political party that enourages fascist salutes and uses a swastika-like symbol as its emblem.


Analysts expect the far-right’s share of the vote to drop, as Greeks look to elect a more moderate and workable coalition. Golden Dawn will most likely remain in Parliament as a fringe party. But its partisans will continue to roam the streets.

History repeats itself.

Germany in early 1930s = austerity.
Greece in 2012 = austerity.

Voila!
