Over 2,000 people attended a National Socialist music festival in the German city of Themar.
German police reported that during the event, which was attended by local Nationalists, 55 "criminal offenses" were recorded. 33 of the offenses involved the use or display of symbols prohibited by the zionist German constitution, including a swastika, the use of NS salutes, and more.
One of the concert participants also struck a press photographer who documented the event.
Attendees began arriving on Friday for the festival, which took place on Saturday and Sunday. The annual festival is the largest National Socialist event in Germany.
This year, 400 anti-Fascist demonstrators protested against the existence of the NS festival on Themar.
One of the protesters was Themar Mayor Hubert Buss, who expressed disappointment that more people did not turn out to protest the concert.

"People should be happy that local people have come out of their homes to show the other side of Themar, I'm sorry there were no more demonstrators like that, but I'm grateful to any of the protesters who left their houses," Bose said.
Many of the protesters expressed disappointment at the fact that the courts did not forbid the Nationalist rock concert, despite a petition submitted by several organizations in an effort to prevent the concert from being held.
