Nazis originally aimed to cultivate the village of Jamel to be a “national-socialist model village,” deliberately seeking tenants and landowners who identified with their views. Jamel rockt den Förster began in 2007 when Birgit and Horst Lohmeyer, farm owners in Jamel, refused to tolerate the intolerance. Jamel rockt den Förster exists to show resistance against the Nazi occupation with Democracy and Tolerance being its founding principles.
