Holocaust Centre of New Zealand condemns John Tamihere

Press Release – Holocaust Centre

New Zealand’s leading organisation for Holocaust education and remembrance condemns the actions of Auckland Mayoral candidate John Tamihere for his use of a Nazi salute during a recent debate at the Chapel Bar.

CEO, Chris Harris says “Mr Tamihere uses Nazi language – the language of race hatred – in a throwaway manner. It is wrong, deeply irresponsible and inciting hate in one of the world’s most ethnically diverse cities. It is utterly unacceptable for a public figure to evoke Hitler and the Nazis as Mr Tamihere is doing”
