Over 3,300 supporters of Germany's National Democratic Party (NPD) protested "liberation" ceremonies marking the end of World War II on Sunday.
The NPD gathered in Alexanderplatz square to denounce the "cult of guilt" afflicting Germany.NPD leader Udo Voigt said, "This was not a day of 'liberation' but a day of defeat for Germany and it's nothing to celebrate."
Eight communists were reportedly arrested for throwing objects from behind police barricades. A few scuffles broke out when they came too close, but they were unsuccessful in disrupting speakers.
Germans said the two hour rally was the largest ever held
