Church's 'Hitler bell' strikes duff note in tiny German town
The church bell in Herxheim am Berg has been ringing over the tiny, wine region town for around 82 years. But some say its Nazi inscription should be reason to make it history.

The idyllic, 700-person village of Herxheim am Berg sits among rows of green vineyards in Rhineland-Palatinate, its 1,000-year-old Protestant church rising above as the one, proud landmark.

But the church, like many surviving old buildings in post-war Germany, has a direct link to the country’s Nazi past - only this one is still visible.
