The Berlin Wall was broken down almost thirty years ago. Before then, we 
all made sarcastic jokes about its official designation by East German 
(GDR) party leaders as “anti-fascist protective barrier”.  We all knew 
better why it was erected. But hearing racist ranting by AfD leaders now 
hoping for victories and watching – or opposing – gangs of marching 
thugs with barely–paraphrased Nazi slogans, from East Berlin to southern 
Saxony, we must wonder if perhaps that scorned terminology also 
contained just a bit of truth.
