On March 11, 2005, the Bundestag, Germany's lower house of parliament, approved a ban on marches by neo-Nazi groups at Holocaust memorial sites amid fears that demonstrations would disrupt the 60th anniversary of the end of World War II. The legislation also banned marches intended to glorify Nazi-era crimes. The bill was presented after neo-Nazi groups applied to march through Berlin's historic Brandenburg Gate, a prominent symbol during the Nazi period, and past a planned Holocaust memorial.
