Some wondered whether the New York Post's front page from today was offensive. Here's what was recently running on the front page of a newspaper in Greece:
From the Financial Times:
Most shockingly, a rightwing Greek newspaper depicts Angela Merkel, Germany’s chancellor, in a Nazi uniform above the headline “Memorandum macht frei” – an allusion to the memorandum in which Greece’s foreign creditors demand more austerity measures and to the Auschwitz slogan.
In these anxious times anti-German sentiments are not unusual in Greece. Locked in a struggle to avoid economic ruin and exit from the eurozone, Greece is confronting the potential collapse of its self-image as a country with a secure place in Europe’s family of nations.
To blame Germany draws on deep wells of national suffering endured during the 1941-1944 Nazi occupation of Greece.
