Right wing growing in Germany

An Indian friend of mine who has lived in Germany for 25 years ( and still lives there ) is on a visit to India, and came to meet me.

He said that Germans admitted a lot of foreigners, including Turks, Syrians, Iraqis, etc because of the feeling of guilt in sending 6 million Jews to gas chambers. They wanted to show that they are not bad people.

But this is recoiling on them. Right wing groups are increasing, thinking their jobs are being take...n away by foreigners, and attacks on foreigners may begin.

He said that it is safer in Berlin, but in Dresden, which was bombed heavily during the Second World War, it is very unsafe for foreigners, and he would advise them not to go there. A right wing party called PEGiDA is inciting such feelings. The same is the position in many other German cities. After Brexit, this has increased
