This photo shows anti-refugee demonstrators near Dresden, Germany, with a black-white-red German national flag from Emperor Wilhelm II‘s and Adolf Hitler‘s days. It was replaced just after World War I and after World War II with another, black-red-gold coloured German flag. The black-white-red flag shows nostalgia for dictatorship.

From daily The Independent in Britain:

Saturday 22 August 2015
Up to 1,000 protesters have clashed with police in eastern Germany in riots reportedly sparked by the arrival of 250 migrants.
Police said protesters shouting “foreigners out” and carrying banners against the “asylum flood” threw bottles and stones at busloads ofasylum seekers arriving in Heidenau, near Dresden.
At least 31 officers were hurt in violent scuffles as police used tear gas to disperse crowds. …
The protest was hijacked by a group of far-right radicals, many belonging to the militant National Democratic Party (NPD), considered aneo-Nazi organisation. …
Chancellor Angela Merkel has said the influx of asylum seekers is the biggest problem Europe currently faces.
