Dispute over bill's grave of Nazi war criminals: Intelligent vandalism

Alfred Jodl's been dead for a long time: The Nazi General who died in the autumn of 1946 by hanging after he was convicted in the Nuremberg trials of the major war criminals.

Jodls ashes scattered allied soldiers in a tributary of the Isar - they wanted to create a tomb is no place of pilgrimage for the Yesterday's.

However, the Name and the service rank Jodls stand on the grave stone in a cemetery. On the idyllic Fraueninsel in the Chiemsee members of Jodls are in addition to other family first and second wife are buried. His second wife, Louise, had worked at the Nuremberg trials as a Secretary for the defenders of her husband, and later she published a book of his diaries from the time.

The infamous military is providing armed and uninvited visit, although he is not buried in the tomb: so, How to adequately deal with one of the leading protagonists of the Nazi injustice?

The latest Causa Jodl, the district court of Munich delivered I. It dismissed today, Tuesday, in a civil case, the appeal of the action artist Wolfram Kastner. Kastner will now report to the final cleaning costs on 4088,34 Euro gross, which were, because he had covered the grave with a red color as a reminder of the bloody deeds of the General.

Mailed

"I don't want to live in a country where convicted war criminals are honored," says Kastner in a telephone conversation of his action. Kastner stood referred to the tomb as an "intolerable abuse", a "memorial", just a few metres from the Lord of the island, where the Federal German constitutional fathers, in 1948, the basic set on the way.

His indignation gave Kastner in four bold actions in the years 2015 and 2016 expression: First, he stuck a sign on the stone cross, an inscription: "No honor for war criminals". Then he broke the letter J from Jodls name, so that only a "odl" remained, a dialect expression for liquid manure or slurry. The J sent by Kastner to the German Historical Museum in Berlin.

Twice-painted Kastner the grave with the red color and the word "war criminals," wrote on the stone. Kastner is for provocative actions, he protested appointments, for example, against certain Road and against the war monuments. He relies on the art and freedom of expression, so, too, at the grave of Jodls.

Jodl in 1945, at the Nuremberg trials

This is maintained by a nephew of the second wife Jodls, children came from two marriages. The nephew was shocked by the action, even if he shares the critical views of the military. "My client has to bear as a legacy for the family tomb, just a matter of him", says Thomas Jahn, the lawyer of the nephew. This is not related to the General, not at all, he be identified with his deeds.

The nephew complains that the artist, according to his lawyer instead: "To the memorial, the tomb was only by Mr Kastner and his criminal actions." At least once a group of neo-Nazis posing in front of the grave and spread the photo on the Internet. The Jodl-suitors tried, even unsuccessfully, to a cleaning action of the nephew had to Commission a stonemason with the renovation.

Iron cross made of travertine

"The defendant has violated through its actions, the property of the plaintiff, intentionally and unlawfully," the judge of the district court of Munich were in their judgment. Such interference was not lawful.

"you can be upset about the design of the tomb because of the honor that Alfred Jodl is given, that is understandable," reads the judgment. Because of the tomb stone at the Chiemsee, it was more for a last view of the NS-wrong - the early Federal Republic. About Jodls Name is a stone cross made of travertine, stands in the base of an Iron cross as a military insignia is engraved. The rank and the birth and death dates are listed: 10.5.1890 to 16.10.1946 - the women seem to comply with the annual figures. And there is no reference to Jodls debt.

the tomb of the Jodls in the cemetery on the island of fraueninsel in the Chiemsee, in part with tarp covered. Alfred Jodl is not buried here, however, the stone reminds us of him.

So it's a kind of memorial? In the process, the military adviser to insist on the guilt of Hitler's tightest, no doubt. As head of the oberkommando der Wehrmacht (OKW) was responsible for Jodl to the war of extermination in the East. He signed, for example, the so-called Commissar order, according to which prisoners of commissioners of the Red army were shot. The deportation of the European Jews, he was involved, he ordered the brutal expulsion of the Norwegian population from the North of the country.

are the Responsibility of the municipality, not the state government

"is this honor you Can cross with your sense of home and the concept of Home of the Bavarian state government agree to this?" Kastner wrote to the Minister-President of Bavaria, Markus Söder. There were two country tags, petitions on the subject, but the state government was not responsible. The small island municipality of Chiemsee.

wanted to resolve the grave in the meantime, because the use of expired, and so, after long Hesitation, to solve the Problem. He cited the tight space. The great-nephew complained, this time in front of the administrative court. According to one on-site visit, judges indicated that, in view of many free tomb the argument will go before the court hardly.

in the Meantime, a planted Thuje obscured the delicate name. In October, the two parties agreed to a compromise: The use is to be extended, the Name and the life data of the war criminal should be hidden in the future by means of a plate affixed permanently. The equally neutral, like everything is open to let the end of the inscription: "family Jodl".

Kastner says, they were all maneuvers of the "Jodl-protection force". More actions at the tomb he says in court. The action the artist wants to carry his message outside of the cemetery, under the people - to the local Christmas market.
