Chemnitz turmoil over immigration: Is the 'German model' threatened?

Civil society specialist Edgar Grande argues that anti-immigration sentiment has reached the heart of German society. "It’s not just the position of the extreme right," he tells Armen Georgian. "Chemnitz was very instructive in this regard; apparently moderate people marched together with extremists." Grande analyses the repositioning of the German right, as well as the emergence of the populist left-wing movement 'Aufstehen' (Stand Up).
