Sign carrier invokes specter of Nazi extermination at complex of concentration camps in World War II
After a Donald Trump rally in Cleveland over the weekend, a man holding a Trump campaign sign told protesters gathered outside as he was leaving, “Go to Auschwitz. Go to fucking Auschwitz.” The incident was recorded in a video that was published at The Telegraph.
The protesters and attendees were, naturally, at odds as they passed each other outside the International Exposition Center, though in the short video no other Trump supporters said anything quite as audacious as the “Auschwitz” line.
Auschwitz, of course, was a group of Nazi concentration camps set up in German-occupied Poland during World War II. There, more than a million prisoners, mostly Jews, were killed during the war.
