Dutch television aired the Nazi version of the text of the German anthem
A huge blunder was made by the Dutch television NPO during the performance of the anthem of Germany before the 1/8 finals of the European Football Championship against England at Wembley. The Nazi version of the musical symbol of the German state was broadcast on teletext, which broadcasts subtitles for people with hearing impairments. The media was quick to apologize on Twitter for the release of the text of “Germany above all”.
“During the live broadcast of the England-Germany match, a wrong version of the German anthem was shown due to oversight. The mistake is our employee. We apologize to the viewers who have been affected by this,” the statement said.
