    Background: Thousands of demonstrators took to the streets of several West German cities on January 29 as people around the world remembered the rise to power of Adolf Hitler, 50 years ago.

    In both Hamburg and Frankfurt, an estimated 10,000 marchers took to the streets, carrying anti-fascist and anti-war banners. The Communist-inspired rally in Frankfurt protested against nuclear and cruise missiles. At least six soldiers of the Bundeswehr, the West German army, joined the demonstration -- knowing they faced disciplinary action for taking part in a political rally. Police were reinforced by army units, but reported no trouble at any of the demonstrations.

    In Gonsenheim near Mainz, over 100 neo-Nazis celebrated the anniversary of the Third Reich with fascist salutes. They assembled in camouflage dress in the grounds of promises owned by Curt Muller who claims to be Hitler's successor. A group of anti-Nazi demonstrators were kept at bay by the authorities.
