Neo-Nazis plan to build Fourth Reich on back of economic crisis claims far-right defector

Neo-Nazis are on the rise in Germany and are planning to exploit the economic crisis to build a Fourth Reich, a defector from their ranks warned yesterday.

Uwe Luthardt painted a chilling picture of the far-Right trying to recruit the record number of young Germans facing a bleak future as the country's economy contracts and unemployment mounts.

Experts fear that the worsening conditions are worryingly similar to those of the late 1920s and early 1930s which propelled Hitler's Nazi regime - the Third Reich - to power.
