TALLINN, September 10 (Itar-Tass) — Estonian Foreign Minister Urmas Paet censured authors of advertizing mocking the memory of Nazi victims, the ministry’s press service reported on Monday.
“We all know how many people were exterminated in concentration camps, so it is absolutely impermissible to joke on this theme or use it in advertizing,” the minister stated. “As an Estonian I regard this disgraceful,” he noted. He expressed regrets that the authors of advertizing impermissible in form “caused anguish to many people.”
This refers to the website of the Estonian gas company that recently, to advertize equipment, placed a photograph of the gate to the Auschwitz concentration camp with the caption reading: “Gas heating is universal, reliable and effective.” The website of a popular tabloid showed the ad of “Slimming tablets from doctor Mengele” with silhouettes of inmates of the Buchenwald concentration camp as the background.
In this connection, Konstantin Dolgov, the Russian Foreign Ministry’s human rights commissioner, declared that Moscow expects the Estonian authorities to bring to responsibility the authors of such “ads”.
