Kevin Russell, the singer from German rock band Böhse Onkelz, has been arrested over a hit and run which has left two people in a life-threatening condition.

On New Year’s Eve, the driver of a luxury 420-horsepower Audi caused a horror accident on a Frankfurt motorway.

But while the victims fought for survival in their burning car, the driver who caused the crash fled the scene.

It is now suspected that Russell (45), lead singer with notorious rock band Böhse Onkelz – a play on the German for Bad Uncles – had been behind the wheel of the Audi, and may have been under the influence of drugs.

The accident took place at 8.25pm on the A66. Friends Jamal A. (19) and Fahdi A. (21) were driving in their Opel Astra when suddenly a black Audi R8 sports car rammed into them, pushing their car against the guard rail before it caught fire…

“Böhse Onkelz were founded in Frankfurt in 1979, originally as a punk band. The four-piece group was known during the 1980s for aggressive song titles like ‘Türken raus’ (‘Turks Out’) and ‘Deutschland den Deutschen’ (‘Germany for Germans’). Later the band turned away from the neo-Nazi scene…” “The “rehabilitation” (and commercial success) of the Onkelz has progressed to the extent that they were considered fit to headline an anti-racist (“Rock Against the Right”) concert in September 2004 in Halle-Munsterland”: see : ‘Subcultures, Pop Music and Politics: Skinheads and “Nazi Rock” in England and Germany’, Timothy S. Brown, Journal of Social History, Fall 2004, Vol.38, No.1, [PDF].

Nazi Semiotics

Gazeta Wyborcza identifies those involved in Auschwitz sign theft. The daily established that among the suspects are a 35-year-old Swedish neo-Nazi group leader Anders H., a 40-year-old immigrant to Sweden from former Yugoslavia Vladimir Z., and a 29-year-old Polish construction company worker Marcin A., who led a gang of four minor burglars.

Two years ago Marcin A. went to Sweden and found a job at the company owned by the father of Anders H. The neo-Nazi leader commissioned the Pole to steal “Arbeit Macht Frei” sign from the Auschwitz gate and his Yugoslavian accomplice provided the car to transport the sign from Poland to Sweden. The Pole hired Andrzej S. alias Soczewa, an unemployed potter with a criminal record who completed the gang and committed the theft.

The alleged instigator of the theft of the “Arbeit macht frei” (“Work will set you free”) sign from the former Nazi concentration camp at Auschwitz, a man living in Sweden, is said to have intended to use the proceeds from the sale of the sign to finance an assassination plot at the Swedish Parliament and at the prime minister’s headquarters in Stockholm. The claim was reported in the Swedish media Jan. 2, citing sources in that country’s intelligence services…
