Rudolf Hess Grave Exhumed To Stop Neo-Nazi Pilgrimages

Amazing this is still a problem Germany has to deal with.

The grave holding the remains of Adolf Hitler’s deputy Rudolf Hess has been destroyed to stop it being used as a pilgrimage site by neo-Nazis.

Hess’s bones were exhumed at the graveyard in the town of Wunsiedel, southern Germany, early on Wednesday.

The remains will be cremated and then scattered at sea.

Hess was captured after flying to Britain in 1941 and sentenced to life in prison. He killed himself in a Berlin jail in 1987 at the age of 93.

It doesn’t help that they have banned the swastika. Doing that just gives it power.
