‘Hitler Salute’ Conviction for 90-year-old Swede Overturned – ‘I was Waving’


90-year-old Vera Oredsson has had her conviction for making a Hitler salute in Sweden overturned after appealing that she was simply waving.

Ms Oredsson, who was born in Nazi Germany and whose father served with Hitler’s infamous stormtroopers,

was initially convicted in February 2018 following the release of a picture that appeared to show her giving the salute at a Nordic Resistance Movement event in May 2016 in Borlänge, SVT reports.

The verdict was appealed in March last year with Oredsson having claimed she was waving at counter-protestors dressed as clowns in the picture rather than giving the salute.
