Chemnitz: Museum director beaten by neo-Nazis

Chemnitz (stuff) – “Happy in the morning because the Chemnitz Art Collections were able to acquire a painting by Karl Schmidt Rottluff, devastated in the evening because young neo-Nazis beat me up.”

These are the words of Director General Dr. Frédéric Bußmann (47), head of the Chemnitz Art Collections, after a right-wing beating attack on Thursday evening.

At around 8:30 p.m., the Frenchman was walking on Hartmannstrasse. According to the police, he noticed a group of young people in a park showing the Nazi salute and shouting “Sieg Heil”.

Bussmann then spoke to the young people, some of whom were drunk, and asked them to stop. However, they showed absolutely no willingness to talk about their disgusting right-wing slogans.

Police spokesman Marcus Gerschler (35): “The man was beaten and kicked out of the group.”

The well-known art expert was able to free himself from the thugs and ran to the nearby Chemnitz-Nordost police station. The officials drove to the crime scene with numerous emergency services and the neo-Nazi group was able to find them.

These are two girls – a 15-year-old Hungarian and a 20-year-old German, and three young German men (17, 17, 18).

According to the Twitter entry, the general director was injured. Bussmann continued: “Not a good idea what to say, punches, kicks, bloody lips and broken glasses. Too much courage!?“

The police in Chemnitz are investigating those involved in the crime for dangerous bodily harm.
