Disturbing footage shows masked German Neo-Nazis dubbed The Immortals recreating torch rallies of the Third Reich
- Flashmob uses texts to orchestrate rallies then upload videos onto YouTube
- Marches have chilling echo of the torch rallies held to honour Hitler in 1930s
- Demonstrators wear white masks and carry placards with extreme nationalist slogans
- Clips end with disturbing slogans such as 'Make your short life immortal'
A German neo-Nazi group is using modern technology to organise and showcase terrifying protests that have a chilling resemblance to the fascist torch rallies of the 1930s.
In one, hundreds of black-clad figures with white masks converged without warning on the streets of Bauzen, Germany, carrying torches and placards with extreme nationalist slogans.
The march, which took place on May 1, was disturbingly similar to the days of The Third Reich which saw the Nazi SA hold night rallies to honour Hitler.

According to CNN, a group calling itself 'Die Unsterblichen' (The Immortals) has been using text message to orchestrate such rallies all over Germany for several months as it makes it more difficult for the police to track their movements.
Many of the clips end with slogans such as 'Make your short life immortal' or 'so that those to come don't forget that you were German.'
Dr Hajo Funke, a professor at the Free University of Berlin, told CNN he believes the tactics employed by the Immortals are designed to attract young people to their cause.
A neo-Nazi group, which first came up with the idea of organising flash mob protests in 2009, was banned by state authorities earlier this summer.
More than a dozen homes of known neo-Nazis have been raided by police in a bid to find the group's central leadership.
