Residents of the small town of Schönberg, in northeastern Germany, held a vigil on Thursday for a nine-year-old Syrian boy who died after a road accident in June.
The second time, the scoreline "1-0" was added, as if to celebrate the child's death, and the authorities decided to replace the paving, having apparently failed to remove the white stains completely.
On both occasions, locals had painted over the Nazi symbol to make it unrecognizable, coloring it in, adding flowers, or changing it into a peace sign.
"I would never have expected this," Mayor Götze told DW at the vigil.
Ultimately, local authorities decided to replace the paving in front of the accident site
