Enviro-nazis?

German environmentalists save Nazi resort - Telegraph
A vast seaside resort built by the Nazis is to be resurrected as a youth hostel to cater for increasing numbers of environmentally conscious Germans staying at home for their holidays.

First built for the master race as part of the Nazi "Strength Through Joy" programme, the hulking dormitories of Prora, stretching over three miles of pristine Baltic coast, were intended to house 20,000 people at a time.

Green party demands for less polluting behaviour have been echoed by Social Democrats, whose deputy parliamentary leader, Ulrich Kelber, has sung the praises of train travel and called for Germans to avoid flights. Even staunch conservatives from Bavaria have been pressing Germans to "learn to value the qualities close to where you live".

"Climatic change has arrived in Germany," said Mr Hohls the head of the German Youth Hostel Association. "The weather has got better and better and in general more and more Germans are staying at home."

I wonder if they will be indulging their naturist tendencies just as they did at the resort near my father's post-war base. His boss used to buzz it in his aircraft for signs of any "activity".

Putin in Russia is resurrecting Komsomol, the Communist equivalent of the Hitler Jugend, but for nationalist political reasons rather than ecological.

We are the enemy, by the way.

Strewth, why does that conjure up a mental image of beachtowels all over the Sudetenland...

Anyone seen a copy of H and E.

The post above, about the Chavs, seems destined to be linked. Now here is a resort to which they can be sent as "cultural ambassadors" 20,000 at a time on holiday to mingle with the Strength Through Joy DeutschenJugendliche and do a bit of cross-cultural fertilization. Save the money.
