Jewish Passengers On Belgian Train Told To Get Off At Auschwitz And Take A Shower

Jewish Passengers On Belgian Train Told To Get Off At Auschwitz And Take A Shower
World

A Belgian train recently instructed all of the Jews aboard to get off at Auschwitz and take a shower.

According to the Tablet, a group of kids somehow got a hold of the keys that operated the train’s loudspeaker and made the announcement during a January 31 trip.

The Jews aboard as well as the Belgian rail company were obviously outraged, and a complaint was filed to the police for incitement to hatred.

The exact words, spoken in French, were:

“Ladies and gentlemen, we are approaching Auschwitz. All Jews are requested to disembark and take a short shower.”

The suspects reportedly gained access to the speaker system during rush hour, or around 5 pm, while the train traveled from Namur to Brussels.

What makes this story even more disturbing is that this has happened before on the exact same train line, the Tablet reports.

“Welcome to this train heading to Auschwitz,” the loudspeaker hijackers said in 2012, followed by “All Jews are requested to disembark at Buchenwald.”

Looks like this train company needs to make some security changes.
