Zentrum für Politische Schönheit is a group of 70 artists. In their own words: "The Center for Political Beauty is an assault team that establishes moral beauty, political poetry and human greatness while aiming to preserve humanitarianism. The group’s basic understanding is that the legacy of the Holocaust is rendered void by political apathy, the rejection of refugees and cowardice. It believes that Germany should not only learn from its History but also take action." (politicalbeauty.com)

The Center built a replica of the Berlin Holocaust outside of AfD politician Björn Höcke's house. The 24 concrete slabs were placed on private property in view of Höcke's property, due to the politician's comments about the Holocaust memorial being a "monument of shame" for Germany. Quote from the article: "The activists say the slabs would be removed only if Höcke agrees to falling on his knees and begging for forgiveness in front of the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe in Berlin."
The Center had rented a property next the AfD politician Björn Höcke's property for 11 months prior to their Holcaust memorial replica project for observation purposes. Quote from the article: 'A local representative of the AfD described the surveillance of Höcke as “psychological warfare” against him and his family.'
