Turkish students found guilty of Nazi salute at Auschwitz

Auschwitz

Two Turkish history students were handed a six-month suspended jail term Monday for giving the Nazi salute at the former Auschwitz death camp, Polish police said.

The 22-year-old man and woman were detained on Sunday while taking pictures of each other performing the salute at the gates of the former Nazi German death camp in the southern Polish city of Oswiecim.

The two were found guilty of “propagating Nazism” and “desecrating a place of memory”, regional police spokesman Mariusz Ciarka said, according to the Polish news agency PAP.

He said they admitted guilt, which allowed the Oswiecim court to sentence them without a trial. The court also fined them and confiscated the phone they used to snap the photos.

The Turks — both history students in the Hungarian capital Budapest — were freed on Monday.

One million Jews were killed at Auschwitz-Birkenau from 1940 to 1945, according to the museum at the site of the World War II camp.

More than 100,000 others including non-Jewish Poles, Roma, Soviet prisoners of war and anti-Nazi partisans also died at the camp.
