customs care is written in the Erzgebirge municipality jahnsdorf. For years, clubs may not advertise their activities in a regular exchange with a large display on the front page of the municipality of sheet, be it the bird exhibition, the witch fire, or the Pond.
In this February, the Jahn dorfer carnival Association is on the phone. He announced on the first page of the official Journal, the Motto of this year's "legendary carnival party": "our Party has a Norm, this year in Uniform". With children and senior carnival on the afternoon of the 2. March, in the evening, then the big main event with DJ Hans from Adorf. Is illustrated the advertisement with a photo-Collage with fence and barbed wire, in the foreground three soldiers with steel helmet and in the Nazi Wehrmacht uniforms.
The photos come from the US-American TV-production "A cage full of heroes", which aired in the early 90s in Germany. She plays in a prisoner-of-war camps of the Second world war. Only in front of the faces of the three actors beams have been mounted, to avoid problems with the copyright. The Sitcom're the Nazis. However, whether this was the point of the Jahn dorfer carnival, is not sewage. For an explanation of the selected subject for the announcement of the carnival party.
Not funny, says the Association of Saxon carnival, the, founded in 1980, Jahn villages Association is organized. The Association of chief Jörg Weiser, Chemnitz is not said of the "Free press" reported on Tuesday about the Motto of the Jahn dorfer carnival and the advertisement in the official journal: "I know what the people, especially in this time." With the barbed wire and the uniforms he could do nothing. "You don't Express what it's all about the carnival: joy, fun and cheerfulness." Wise holds the symbols for strange, even if it comes from a Satire. He asks: How, only the programme of the Celebration to look like? "This can quickly backfire."
mayor had approved the advertisement first
The Albrecht Spindler, the non-party mayor of Jahn village thinks now. He had approved the advertisement on the title page of the municipality of sheet first. On a daily level-a request he admits that he had not considered the subject first, "so critical". But in retrospect, he say: "I made a mistake. I'd have to say." Even if "A cage full of heroes" is a Satire, had not been made this connection clear. At least a part of the population, there is outrage, feelings had been hurt.
In an interview with "Bento" takes Spindler the carnival: "It's carnival, and the series is a perfect Satire. Deckle also exaggerated, so why not a überspitztes Motto are talking about?" In the past year, the Jahn villages Association had chosen burned the slogan "summer, sun, ass - Party at the Caribbean beach".

The predecessor of Spindler, the CDU-politician Carsten Michaelis, was confronted in the municipality with difficult discussions on the accommodation of refugees. 2015 was founded in the municipality's Initiative, "Jahn village says' no ' to the container village," in December 2015, firecrackers were thrown on a Bus with incoming refugees. 2017 balance sheet Michaelis: "For the future, it depends on the part of the population has demonstrated against the refugees, in the mid -' back."
Spindler explains conditions to be approach also with these Forces, and the debates in the place. "Against this Background, I have to try to claim me," he told the daily mirror. Of course, it would "unreservedly for the rule of law and democracy". He had to find "a way to a certain amount of opinion diversity to allow". Otherwise there is a risk that parts of the population "disappear in the dark". The action of the carnival he did not want to demonize it, but in the municipality of the conversation about search.

The Saxon Left-a member of the Landtag Kerstin Köditz told the daily mirror: "It's about carnival, but funny, the incident is not. Carnival behind bars? Guarded by the Nazi Wehrmacht?
