Believe it or not, the Estonian gas company, GasTerm Eesti, published on August 23 on their website a photograph of the Auschwitz concentration camp, with the infamous inscription Arbeit macht frei, or work makes you free. The caption of the published photo read: “Gas heating – flexible, convenient, and effective.”
GasTerm Eesti has removed the offensive picture and issued an apology, according to Haaretz.
Writes the Jerusalem Post: “The next day the photo was removed from the company’s website and an apology was posted there. Company director Sven Linros said, according to DzD.ee portal, “Hitler killed himself because he got a gas bill … a lot of people laugh at this, but I do not.”
Is anti-Semitism alive and kicking in Estonia?
