The surgeon who was about to perform a simple operation on the 36 year old truck driver stormed out of the operating theatre, telling his staff he would not operate because “I am Jewish.”The Nazi symbol on the man’s arm included a large swastika. German magazine Suddeutsche Zeitung reported the patient was already under anaesthetic when the doctor noticed the tattoo.The medical team called in another surgeon and the operation was successfully completed.The Jewish doctor, 46, later told Suddeutsche Zeitung: “My conscience did not allow me to operate on people with neo-Nazi ideologies.”
