Left-wing presidential candidate compares refugees to persecuted Jews

Status: 2:00 p.m. | Reading time: 2 minutes Left-wing presidential candidate draws parallels with poverty in the Nazi era Gerhard Trabert is the left-wing candidate for the office of Federal President. At the digital start of the year for his party, he sees a parallel between the social exclusion of poor and refugee people and the persecution of Jews during the Nazi era. The non-party candidate for Federal President of the Left drew comparisons with the exclusion of people who had fled with the Jews persecuted during the Nazi era. As then, Germans now know what is happening to refugees. The left candidate for the office of Federal President, Gerhard Trabert, drew a parallel to the persecution of Jews during the Nazi era with regard to the social exclusion of poor and refugee people. At the digital start of the year for the left, the social physician quoted a Jewish youth who died in 1945 in the Bergen-Belsen Nazi concentration camp. In his diary, the boy complained that society ignored the fate of the Jews. Trabert said: “Why this quote? Just as many Germans knew back then what was happening to the Jews, today we know what is happening to refugees in the Mediterranean, in Libyan and Syrian camps. We know how poverty is increasing, we know about the increased death rate of poor people here in Germany too. Comparing the richest with the poorest quarter, poor women die 4.4 and poor men 8.6 years earlier. It’s all a scandal.” The causes lie in economic, social, trade and foreign policy. “We must not stop naming this, this form of structural violence,” said Trabert.

“Courts abuse power”

The non-party was nominated by the left this week as a candidate for the election of the Federal President in February. The doctor has been working in the health care of homeless and refugees for decades. He said about the situation today: “The courts also abuse their power to silence criticism in this democracy. We must not accept that.” Trabert referred to the Frenchman Stéphane Hessel and his criticism of financial capitalism and emphasized that “resistance” to anti-social politics was necessary. The left must also become more profiled.
