My son thinks so — at least a little bit. We were in Zehlendorf, an upper middle class to rich neighborhood where their school is located. We went to see his sailing club — the Potsdamer Yacht Club — but of course it was closed. On the way back we noticed some election posters from the neo-Nazi NPD party (National Partei Deutschlands).
