A woman whose relatives died in Auschwitz says she was shocked to discover wine bottles featuring images of Hitler in an Italian supermarket.

Cindy Hirsch from Philadelphia, U.S. was holidaying with her husband Michael in Garda, northern Italy, when the couple spotted the wine bottle labels featuring pictures of the former Nazi leader.

One of the bottles being sold in a supermarket near their hotel was called 'Mein Kampf' after the right-wing dictator's famous book, another was called 'Ein volk, ein Reich, ein Fuhrer' (one people, one empire, one Fuhrer).

Other labels depicted Hitler in different poses including one in which he is shown making the Nazi salute. Another bottle featured an image of Pope John Paul II.

Mrs Hirsch's father was born in Czechoslovakia and is an Auschwitz survivor, however her grandparents, aunt and other relatives died at the concentration camp.

 

According to the Daily Telegraph Mrs Hirsch said: 'It is not only an affront to Jews, even if my husband and I are Jewish. It is an affront to humanity as a whole'.

Mr Hirsch added: 'It is very shocking and startling to us.

'We would think of it as neo-Nazism. It makes you wonder about the sympathies of the local people.'

An inquiry has been opened into the sale of the wine bottles which have been available for a number years.
