Probe comes after Jewish community expresses anger over far-right event, where participants were seen giving Nazi salute and a woman’s address echoed 1930s rhetoric. Prosecutors in Madrid on Tuesday said they had opened an investigation into anti-Semitic comments made at a neo-Nazi rally held on the weekend which drew ire from Spain’s Jewish community. The incident took place Saturday when around 300 people gathered at La Almudena cemetery, with footage on social media showing several people in the crowd repeatedly giving the Nazi salute. The rally, which was also attended by a Catholic priest, was a commemoration of the so-called “Blue Division,” a unit of Spanish military volunteers that fought for the Nazis during World War II. At the cemetery, they laid flowers in front of the memorial to the fallen Blue Division soldiers. During the rally, a young woman gave an inflammatory speech echoing rhetoric from the 1930s.
