ITALY-BERLUSCONI-GERMANY
Berlusconi's new gaffe: claims German people deny death camps' existence; sparks anger

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Saturday, April 26, 2014 1:40 PM EDT
ROME


Former Italian Premier Silvio Berlusconi has sparked anger by claiming that Germans deny that Nazi-run death camps ever existed.

Berlusconi was presenting his center-right Forza Italia party's candidates Saturday in Milan for May's European Parliament elections when he mentioned a 2003 gaffe he made comparing now Parliament president Martin Schulz to a concentration camp guard. Berlusconi said he didn't want to offend Schulz, then added: "the Germans, for them, concentration camps never existed."

German Families Minister Manuela Schwesig, on Twitter, called Berlusconi's remarks "unspeakable" and urged a fight against right-wing "populism."

A Berlusconi stalwart, former education minister Mariastella Gelmini, dismissed the flap as campaign propaganda.

Berlusconi lost his Italian Senate seat and is banned from running in elections because of a tax fraud conviction but still leads his party.
