French Jewish Group Urges Hitler Furniture Auction Ban

On Sunday, France's main Jewish body called for the cancellation of an auction of Adolf Hitler and Nazi air force chief Hermann Goering's personal effects due in Paris next month.

CRIF, the French associate of the World Jewish Congress, said the sale, planned for April 26, was "a form of moral indecency" and disrespectful to "the victims of Nazi barbarism.”
