A surgeon stormed out of an operating room after noticing Nazi symbols, including a large swastika, tattooed on his patient's arm, German magazine Suddeutsche Zeitung reported on Monday.
"I cannot operate on this man, I am Jewish," the doctor told the medical staff minutes before the surgery was about to begin. The 36-year-old truck driver, who was about to undergo a thyroidectomy surgery, was already anaesthetized when the doctor approached him and noticed a tattoo of an eagle and above it a swastika.
The medical team was forced to call in another surgeon and the operation was successfully completed.
The Jewish doctor, 46, told the magazine "my conscience did not allow me to operate on people with neo-Nazi ideologies." Following the incident, the patient's family called to dismiss the doctor, claiming he broke his physician's oath. However, the German physicians association sided with the doctor.
