Two Turkish students have been charged for the dissemination of fascism after being caught doing the Hitler salute under the “Arbeit macht frei” sign over the entrance to the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp. The Turkish tourists, a 22-year-old man and woman were caught on Sunday afternoon by security officials. The students were standing under the famous gate, taking photos and raising their right hand in a “Heil Hitler” salute. Both are students of history at the University of Budapest. “We have interviewed all witnesses of this unpleasant event,” said inspector Mariusz Ciarka, a Kraków police spokesman. “Today we will talk to the the director of the Museum and verify the evidence together with the prosecutor,” he added. Apart from CCTV recordings, police have also confiscated the mobile phones of the students. Police were quick to remind the press that recently two other students were charged with insulting Jews and disseminating fascism in the Majdanek concentration camp. The Germans established Auschwitz camp in 1940 as a prison for Polish people. Auschwitz II-Birkenau was created two years later. The Germans killed, executed and murdered at least 1.1 million people, mainly Jews, but also Polish people, Roma, Russians and many others nationalities. The camp became a museum in 1947. It was visited by over 1.4 million people last year .
