Buffing Nazi Graffiti

Anti-Nazi Action | Irmela Mensah-Schramm is well known in Berlin for her effort against Nazi symbols, signs and slogans in public space. The 65 years old anti-fascist graffiti-grandma documents Nazi graffiti and stickers before she buffs them and is in that way a perfect example for modern anti-fascist work.

Vincenzo Caruso and Fabrizio Mario Lussu are currently working on a video documentary called “The Hate Destroyer” about her work, the ideals and Nazi graffiti in general!

Irmela Mensah-Schramm is an heroine with no muscles nor super powers, armed with a paint spray, and a scraper, daily hunting throughout Germany looking for racist or homophobic graffiti or stickers. Indifference is her worst enemy, and to those, who minimize, she answers: People who draw a one meter swastika on a wall have to realize what they are doing.

So if you notice any right-winged graffiti on the streets, take a can or a marker and strike back!
