Ofcom urged to stop Bauer's radio takeover due to 'Nazi magazine'tags: World War II, Nazis, Guardian (UK), Der Landser, Wehrmacht, Waffen SS
Ofcom has been drawn into the controversy over Bauer Media's publication of the German magazine Der Landser, which has been accused of whitewashing the history of the Waffen-SS, the Nazi party's armed wing.
