Pose with Hitler?! Indonesian museum offers happy snaps in front of Auschwitz display for ‘fun’

Indonesia is an increasingly devout Muslim state.

Visitors at a visual effects museum in Indonesia can pose for a snap with a wax Adolf Hitler, against a banner depicting the Auschwitz death camp. Seen as “fun” by the museum, HRW and a US Jewish organization called it “sickening” and “wrong.”

De Mata, the entertainment museum behind the controversial display, placed a wall-sized photo of the entrance to the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp with the infamous inscription “Arbeit macht freit” (Work sets you free). In front of the banner, a wax sculpture of the Nazi German leader Adolf Hitler stands in a dominant posture.

  • Well, at least one of them is a rebel — he stuck his finger up Hitler’s nose.

    What does the average Indonesian know about Jews? Nothing. They’ve never met one, the country has little or no Jewish history, this is islam writ large and is a stain on humanity.

        In November 2008, 28 neatly drawn 1:100 blueprints of the Auschwitz concentration camp were discovered hidden in a Berlin apartment undergoing renovation. One page of the set of drawings bore the signature of Reichsfuhrer SS Heinrich Himmler. The exact address has never been revealed, leading to Internet speculation that the unspecified building once belonged to Hajj Ami al-Husseini, the notorious leader of Palestine’s Arabs who spent the years 1941-1945 as a Nazi collaborator, or more accurately as a member of the Nazi elite, living in Berlin.
        One Auschwitz survivor testified he saw al-Husseini visiting the concentration camp with Himmler in 1943. Could the SS leader have given al-Husseini an autographed copy of the plans for Auschwitz, as well as a private tour?

    Funny, but work hasn’t set the Indonesians free.
