A DAD who killed his wife and three kids over a fake Covid pass was a member of anti-vaxx group who compared jabs to the Holocaust.

German police are investigating after Devid R. is believed to have killed his wife and three kids aged four, eight and 10.

Detectives believe that the killer dad was immersed in the world of the Querdenker movement – a prolific anti-vaxx group in Germany.

German politicians have described the movement as a “sect” and the group have been under surveillance by intelligence agencies.

The anti-vaxxers have clashed with riot cops amid violent demonstrations over vaccine and lockdown measures.

And they have been condemned for using the Star of David as they compare the life-saving vaccines to the Holocaust.

Devid R. appears to been a follower of the cult-like movement before he killed his entire family over a fake Covid vaccine pass.

He was a member of the local chapter Freedom Messengers of Königs Wusterhausen.

And the twisted dad was the member of various group chats for the movement using encrypted messenger group Telegram.

Messages posted in one channel from members affiliated with the Querdenker's appear to pay tribute with Devid R.

“We also lost a party member from 'the base',” a member posted in the channel Freedom Messengers.

“No matter what happened, it should open our eyes to the fact that we all have difficult times, but we must try to give ourselves strength in time and be there for each other.”

From the Telegram, you can see that Devid R. was last online on Thursday evening after first joining the group in November 25.

The killer is reported to have forged a fake vaccine pass for his wife Linda – only for the family to found out.

Prosecutors said the dad feared the parents would be jailed and lose custody of their children, Leni, Janni and Rubi.

Querdenker followers also further suggested in the Telegram channel that his death was part of a wider conspiracy – further fuelling their beliefs.

“It could be that the fake vaccination card thing is just a lie to scare people with fake vaccination cards,” one wrote.

Devid R. also appears to be have been friends with one of the more prominent Querdenker figureheads.

Querdenker means “lateral thinker” in German – and it is made of a loose coalition of people on the far left and the far right.

The movement has become an umbrella under which other extremist groups – such as US-based conspiracy theory QAnon and the “Reichsburgers” – can shelter.

Reichsburgers believe the pre-World War 2 German Reich never ended and the modern German state is illegitimate.

Querndenkers are a wide coalition, with it being found that 23 per cent voted for Green Party – while 15 per cent voted for the far right Alternative for Germany.

The main cause of the movement has been railing against Germany's Covid measures.

Unvaccinated people are now barred from much of public life – with only those who have had the jab allowed to go to restaurants, cinemas and other public facilities.

It comes as Germany – like much of Europe – has seen a resurgence in the virus, with 2million new cases in the last two months.

Twisted logic sees them argue the unvaccinated have been persecuted to the point of discrimination.

Querndenkers compare these measures to the Holocaust and stage sometimes violent demonstrations.

Marches have varied in scale from hundreds to thousands – and have seen cops respond to chaos with batons, pepper spray and water cannons.

And the protests have seen marchers adopt the Star of David and the striped pyjamas worn by Jews and other prisoners in Nazi concentration camps.

Germany's anti-Semitism commissioner, Felix Klein, demanded that the German government stop protesters using the yellow star back in June.

“If people pin so-called Jewish stars on themselves in demonstrations, thereby drawing comparisons that relitivise the Holocaust, then the means provided by law should be applied against them,” he said.

The Amadeu Antonio Foundation – a who work to engage with extreme groups – warned of the danger from the Querdenkers.

“The conspiracy ideology scene uses certain images of men to spread hostility towards democracy and anti-Semitic myths,” it said.

“With traditional ideas of gender, many people are thus reached by conspiracy ideologies and more easily radicalised.

“Injured masculinity, the fear of losing sovereignty and the need to 'know better than everyone else' result in a toxic breeding ground that can become a danger to others.”

And its also been suggested Devid R. may have been suffering previous mental health issue.

Prof. Dr. Isabella Heuser-Collier told RND: “It is usually the case with such take-home suicides that there is a mental illness, for example a severe anxiety disorder or depression with delusional ideas.

“Suicide notes are not written on impulse. (…) Such a letter is rather written in a state of calm and seclusion, when the person has decided to die.

“Then the person simply wants to explain themselves again, set something straight or justify themselves to children, relatives or the community.”

Police were alerted by a neighbour – who had seen lifeless bodies in the house's living room on Saturday, according to a statement from officials.

And each child was found dead in their own bedroom.

Police found a gun in the house which Devid must have obtained illegally, local media reports.

Cops said they found no indication that anyone else was present at the time – or that anyone forced their way into the house.

Police said autopsies on the five bodies were underway and will determine how long the family had been dead.  

In a statement, prosecutors said they believe Devid R. was the one who killed his family.

“There were no signs of forced entry, signs of a struggle or any other evidence of the presence of third parties at the time of the crime in the family home,” it said.

“The investigations by the homicide squad and the public prosecutor's office in Cottbus are continuing.

“The evaluation of the numerous clues will also take some time.“
