To many Germans, the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, this month and the American president’s reaction to it came as a shock. Even those who have come to expect little of Donald Trump — he’s a uniquely unpopular figure among Germans — were aghast. “It’s racist, far-right violence, and that requires determined and forceful resistance no matter where in the world it appears,” Chancellor Angela Merkel said.
"How Germany Deals With Neo-Nazis" is from the August 22, 2017 Opinion section of The New York Times. It was written by Anna Sauerbrey and narrated by Kristi Burns.
