Nazis try to silence Holocaust Remembrance Day

The night before Tuesday's International Holocaust Remembrance Day, Swedish neo-Nazis targetted many news outlets.

They cordoned off the entrances to Swedish Radio P4 Dalarna, Sundsvall Tidning, DT in Börlänge, and others, reports Medievärlden. Mittmedia local newspapers were also targeted, as was the headquarters of Swedish Radio in Stockholm.

The neo-Nazis also targeted the Kärrtorp senior high school, according to Metro newspaper 

Propaganda about "the truth" was spread by the violent Swedish Resistance Movement group. This group was behind the armed attack on a demonstration in Kärrtorp, December 2013.

Swedish Radio P4 Dalarna reports seeing a placard at the entrance telling the organization not to report about the memorial day, and has reported it to the police. They will be going about their reporting as usual, according to their website.

Anders Ingvarsson, the publisher of Sundsvalls Tidning, tells Medievärlden, "They mostly just want to get attention, but at the same time, it's an attempt to affect freedom of speech and we take this very seriously, so we've reported it to the police."
