The far-right group “Der Dritte Weg” held a torch-lit vigil in the Bavarian town of Wunsiedel to commemorate German soldiers who lost their lives in World War II. About 280 people held torches and waved black flags related to the Third Reich, in order to show their support for National Socialism.

The vigil is celebrated every year under the slogan “Dead are only those who are forgotten!” The annual vigils have come under heavy criticism from anti-fascist groups and have been met with a string of counter demonstrations.
