“There is no equivalence between public health measures, laws and vaccinations aimed at saving lives to the Holocaust,” the Anti-Defamation Commission said.

THE Anti-Defamation Commission (ADC) has condemned the “ugly” sighting of a man wearing a concentration camp uniform in Melbourne’s CBD on Saturday, comparing the mandating of COVID-19 vaccines and proposed pandemic laws to Nazi Germany.

A Jewish woman in her 50s, who has Holocaust survivors in her family, noticed the man on the corner of Flinders and Swanston streets holding a sign saying “History repeats”.

A video of the man was sent to ADC chair Dr Dvir Abramovich, who blasted the display.

"History repeats"

Warning: footage may distress some viewers This idiot was spotted in Melbourne today wearing a striped uniform and holding a sign saying "History repeats", comparing the mandating of COVID-19 vaccines and proposed pandemic laws to Nazi Germany."There is no equivalence between public health measures, laws and vaccinations aimed at saving lives to the Holocaust," Anti-Defamation Commission Chairman Dvir Abramovich told The AJN."Nothing in Australia comes even close to the indescribable atrocities carried out on an industrial scale by the Nazis."Meanwhile, congregants at Brisbane Synagogue were this morning confronted by the sight of a Nazi flag flying from an apartment window above the shule as they attended Shabbat services. “For that to appear in 2021 in Brisbane over a synagogue is just atrocious,” the Queensland Jewish Board of Deputies said.Shame on those involved in these disgusting displays.

“There is no equivalence between public health measures, laws and vaccinations aimed at saving lives to the Holocaust,” he said.

“Nothing in Australia comes even close to the indescribable atrocities carried out on an industrial scale by the Nazis, and to suggest that we are on the road to Auschwitz is beyond words and divorced from reality.”

Stating, “Such outrageous equations are insensitive and debase history’s darkest period,” Abramovich added, “People can, of course, voice their disagreement with government policy, but they should not appropriate the Holocaust to advance their causes.”
