Austrian Politician Compares EU to Third Reich, Jews Outraged


Austria’s Jewish community was outraged on Monday, after a local politician compared the European Union (EU) to the Third Reich in Nazi Germany, Reuters reported.

Following the comments by Andreas Moelzer, co-lead candidate for Austria’s far-right Freedom Party (FPO), the leader of Austria’s Jewish community called on him to drop his campaign for re-election to the European Parliament.
