In Berlin, Germany, you can still see neo-Nazi stickers and graffiti on walls and in public places. But the brave activist featured in this video, 71-year-old Irmela Mensah-Schramm, has made it her mission to erase these symbols of hate. You can find this former school teacher on the streets almost every day, replacing swastikas with hearts and removing stickers from park benches.
