Jewish human rights groups have urged the federal government to condemn the Nazi-themed wedding in Truskala last Friday.
The Simon Wiesenthal Center said it was outraged at the wedding held at the Tlaxcala Church on the 77th anniversary of the day Adolf Hitler knotted with Eva Braun.
The center said in a statement that the bride was wearing a swastika wedding dress and the groom was dressed as a Nazi SS officer. In one photo, a bride, identified only as Josefina, sits on a Volkswagen Beetle covered with a Nazi flag. Her new husband, identified as Fernando, stands beside the car.
Simon Samuels, director of international affairs at the Wiesenthal Center, wondered why the federal government did not blame the wedding in Tlaxcala, Mexico’s smallest state.
“Mexico has voted for a UN resolution condemning the Holocaust and all forms of racist distortion …. There are also exemplary state agencies such as Conapred. [the National Council to Prevent Discrimination].. However, there was no reaction from states or human rights groups condemning this anger. … I hope the Mexican authorities will take appropriate steps. “
Ariel Gerblanc, Latin American director of the Wiesenthal Center, said the organization “strongly condemns the memory distortions and trifles of the 6 million Jews killed in the Holocaust.”
“… Mexico must adopt the definition of an anti-Semitic International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance and incorporate it into the law to prevent such hateful behavior,” he said.
According to a statement from the Wiesenthal Center, the groom is idolizing SS Captain Reinhard Heydrich, who is considered the chief architect of the Holocaust. He and his wife have a son called Reinhardt and a daughter called Hannah Gartrud. It is named after Hanna Reitsch, a Nazi pilot, and Gertrude Shotolz Klink, leader of the Nazi Germany’s National Socialist Women’s Alliance.
newspaper Mirenio Fernando reported that he was a civil servant, but did not mention which government he worked for.
He said Mirenio He and his wife would have waited until next year to get married if they couldn’t find an available church on Hitler’s 1945 wedding anniversary. Fernado said he married as a civil servant in Ecatepec, Mexico on April 29, 2016, and that members belong to a club that recreates wartime events.
Josefina said Mirenio She didn’t know much about the history of Nazi Germany until she met her husband. “I have a responsible husband, so I support him,” she said.
Fernando publicly admitted that he praised Hitler, who committed himself with Brown the day after they got married.
“For many, I know Hitler is a genocide that is a symbol of racism and violence, but people judge. [him] I don’t have the information, or I believe in the history of the victors. “
“Hitler was a vegetarian who took his country out of extreme poverty and returned the territory lost in World War I to his people. His people loved him.” He said.
