Germany Bans PETA's Holocaust Ads

Germany has banned a series of ads by PETA which compares Holocaust victims to animals in slaughterhouses.
The posters, sponsored by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), bear photographs of concentration camp inmates, both alive and dead, along with pictures of plates piled with meat and animals ready for slaughter, accompanied by the slogan: "The Holocaust on your plate." The Constitutional Court decision, reached on February 20 but announced now, said the campaign would have made "the fate of the victims of the Holocaust appear banal and trivial."
The court took the case on behalf of a group of descendants of Holocaust victims.
