A projection of the face of the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan styled as the face of Adolf Hitler appeared on the walls of the building of the Turkish Embassy in Berlin. The projection became a reaction of German artists to the recent arrest of two journalists in Turkey.
The caption for the digital image on the wall said: "He's back."
Artists from Pixel Helper group, who conducted this act, posted a photo of their work on Facebook.
"We, the Germans, know what happens in early stages of dictatorship. The similarity between the early Nazi regime and the rule of Erdogan in Turkey is frightening," Oliver Benkovski, a member of Pixel Helper, told The Independent.

Scientific Director of the German-Russian Forum Alexander Rahr told Pravda.Ru that many Europeans were concerned about many things in the legislation of Turkey.
"In fact, the Europeans do not like a lot of things in the Turkish legislation.

Specifically, it goes about the restriction of freedom of speech, limitation of political actions, persecution of journalists and opposition politicians," said the expert.
