The Symbol Formed in These Bricks Has Forced a German Construction Company to Apologize and Police to Investigate

“We immediately had the red bricks removed from the area..."

Police are investigating and a construction firm is apologizing after it was discovered that bricks were laid in a German pedestrian walkway to form a swastika.

According to NBC News, it was not immediately clear if construction workers intentionally laid the bricks in such a manner, whether it was a mere coincidence, or if someone else later rearranged the stones to form the Nazi symbol.

“We immediately had the red bricks removed from the area where we are refurbishing our inner-city pedestrian zone, but residents had already voiced their dismay in emails to our offices," Goslar city council spokesman Christian Burgart told NBC News.

He added that the mayor met with the construction company but "did not have the impression that this was a deliberate act and the company apologized several times."

The display of Nazi symbols is illegal in Germany and punishable by fines or imprisonment.
