    I being a True Blue Aussie, and my forefathers being Lutheran Swiss Aristocrats am so removed from all of this, maybe why I don't get it? I don't see what it will solve by fighting hate with contempt?

    It means that the NeoNazis will not be able to gather at his grave to call attention to their cause. It is not countering hate with contempt, it is putting the children's toys out of sight because they don't know that they are making fools of themselves.

    You said it yourself, the grave was a shrine to neonazis. People were fed up with nazis gathering in their town every year. So when the contract between Hess's family and the graveyard operators ended, it simply wasn't renewed.
    That's what's done with almost every grave after a certain amount of time. Only in rare occasions they keep it, when it was a very famous person for example. They didn't want to give him that honours but become a peaceful town again.
