Holocaust-mocking train announcement in Belgium

(JNS.org) In January, passengers aboard a Belgian train traveling between Namur and Brussels gained access to the public speakers on the train and announced that Jews should get off at Auschwitz and take a short shower. “Ladies and gentlemen, we are approaching Auschwitz. All Jews are requested to disembark and take a short shower,” the announcement stated, according to the British newspaper The Independent. Viviane Teitlebaum, a Belgian lawmaker, told Belgian broadcaster RTL that she believes the men took a set of keys from the conductor to access the PA system. More than 1.1 million people – more than 90 percent of them Jewish – were systematically killed at Auschwitz during the Holocaust.
