When Louis Met… The Nazis (Part 3 & 4)

The two little girls in the film, Lamb and Lynx Gaede, subsequently went on to form the musical duo “Prussian Blue” that was featured on a segment of ABC’s Primetime in 2006. During their ABC interview, the homeschooled twins said they believed Adolf Hitler was a great man with good ideas and they described the Holocaust as being exaggerated. Lynx and Lamb, as well as representatives from neo-Nazi National Vanguard with whom they and their mother are affiliated, claim not to be white supremacists, but “separatists” that want a homeland for white people.

The duo moved with their mother April, their stepfather and their younger half-sister from Bakersfield, California to Kalispell, Montana in 2006 because, in their mother’s words, Bakersfield was “not white enough.” Some of their new neighbors didn’t welcome them; a handful of city residents passed out fliers warning of the family’s views, and signs proclaiming “No Hate Here” appeared on windows around the town. The duo toured Europe in 2007.
