What does the symbol 14

Signs and codes are important components of both right-wing extremist and neo-Nazi interaction. On the one hand, they serve as a clear identification sign of ideological sentiment, on the other hand, they are intended to help circumvent criminal law provisions relating to National Socialist re-employment.

Belonging to the neo-Nazi scene manifests itself among other things. through the worldwide use of numerical codes that are related to National Socialism. The numbers 88, 14, 18 and 28 are often found in pseudonyms and greetings used by neo-Nazis:

  • 88: Code for the Nazi greeting "Heil Hitler" (H is the 8th letter of the alphabet, 88 = HH = "Heil Hitler")

  • 14: Synonym for “14 words”, a sentence consisting of 14 words coined by an American neo-Nazi: “We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children.” Secure the people and a future for white children. ")

  • 18: Code for "Adolf Hitler" (1st and 8th letters of the alphabet = AH). This numerical code is used specifically by the militant neo-Nazi group "Combat 18" ("Kampfgruppe Adolf Hitler").

  • 28: Code for the neo-Nazi skinhead group "Blood & Honor" (2nd and 8th letters of the alphabet = BH).

In racist and neo-Nazi linguistic usage, acronyms (words formed from the first letters of several words) play an important role in addition to numbers:

  • »ZOG«: »Zionist-Occupied Government«.

  • »RAHOWA«: Synonym for »Racial Holy War«.

  • »WPWW«: identical to »White Pride World Wide«.
