berlin - Two Chinese tourists were held in Berlin on Saturday because they had photographed each other for the Rijksdaggebouw while they brought the Hitler greetings. After paying a deposit of 500 euros per person, 36-year-old and 49-year-old Chinese are released.
The men can be charged with using 'symbols of illegal organizations.' '
The Rijksdaggebouw was destroyed in 1933 by fire. In 1955 the building was restored. It was then on the western side of the Berlin Wall as a symbol of the German division and the separation between the West and the communist countries. The German Parliament (Bondsdag) is housed in the Rijksdaggebouw.
