Co-founder of outlawed fascist group who was pictured giving a Nazi salute in a concentration camp execution chamber tells court he doesn’t believe the Holocaust had any effect place.

Alex Davies, 27, from Swansea, is accused of being a member of the banned organization National Action (NA) after it was banned on December 16, 2016.

Barnaby Jameson QC, prosecuting, told the trial at Winchester Crown Court that the UK government had banned the group after it ‘terrorised’ towns across the country with its call for ‘all-out race war’.

Following the ban, Davies set up the ‘continuity’ group NS131, which represented National Socialist Anti-Capitalist Action and which was also banned by the government, Mr Jameson said.

Court heard Davies was photographed in May 2016 saluting Nazis and carrying an NA flag in the execution chamber of Germany’s Buchenwald concentration camp, where 56,000 Jews were murdered during World War II world.

Davies said he felt “bad” about the photo which also featured fellow NA member Mark Jones, and added, “I’m not sure it’s a good thing to do, whether it’s the good thing to do.”

He said he was a Nazi supporter but did not believe Hitler’s regime committed the Holocaust, although it did commit “crimes against Jews”. He added: “No diet is perfect.”

He said: “I don’t believe there was a systematic extermination of the Jews. I can’t be a National Socialist if the Holocaust happened, I can’t support an ideology that supports genocide.

“I have the same moral compass as anyone else, I believe murder is wrong and I cannot support something that has engaged in systematic genocide of people because they are Jewish. “

Davies admitted to being photographed in York a month after the visit to Germany, carrying a banner saying “Hitler was right”.

He said, “Hitler was right about a lot of things. As a National Socialist, I believe that his principles, in general, agree with mine.

He admitted that “some people” would interpret this as referring to the Holocaust.

The court heard that a sticker reading “National Action Final Solution” appeared on NS131’s website.

The jury also saw a poster based on the movie Reservoir Dogs, showing NA members with nicknames.

Mr Jameson told the court Davies was referred to as the founder on the poster, with other members named Gasser Darren and Zyklon Ben, referring to the Holocaust.

Davies said he did not use the term “final solution” to refer to the Holocaust and added, “I believe it means a political solution, a national solution that would solve many problems in the country.”

He said the aim of NA was “to bring young people into nationalism” and to create a “nationalist Britain that would be a white Britain”.

But he told the court that NS131 was not created as a continuation of NA and had different purposes and processes.

Davies, from Swansea, denies being a member of any banned organization between December 17, 2016 and September 27, 2017.

The trial continues.
