Dresden, Germany: U.S. Tourist Beaten For Nazi Salute PDF Print E-mail

A nitwit traveler with obviously too much booze befuddling his brain, recently walked around the ancient city’s streets shouting and doing the Heil Hitler arm gesture. He was attacked by angry Germans because they didn’t want to be reminded of the bad old days. He’s now facing legal problems.

Just a couple of weeks previously, two clueless tourists from China were jailed for doing the same in Berlin. In addition to angering the natives, it’s also against the law to do the hated salute anywhere in that nation.

There’s a lesson to be learned here for senior wanderers. When visiting foreign countries, always obey the local laws and other restrictions. If ignored or you insist on showing off your stupidity, it could get you in trouble. Watch your language, alcoholic drinks, dress codes, sanitary regulations, curfews and other behavior constraints.
