A satirical play based on Adolf Hitler’s youth premieres in Germany on Friday despite complaints about an offer of free tickets to spectators willing to wear a swastika.

Citing freedom of artistic expression, prosecutors in Konstanz rejected claims that the play breaks laws banning public display of Nazi symbols.

Critics have branded the theatre offer “tasteless” and called for a boycott.

The theatre says its aim is to show how easily people can become corrupted.

Anyone paying up to €29 (£25; $35) for a ticket will be asked to wear a Star of David “as a sign of solidarity with the victims of Nazi barbarism”, Theatre Konstanz says on its website (in German).
