Plan for crematorium next to Nazi concentration camp in Poland provoke outrage

Jewish groups and Holocaust survivors had reacted with fury to the proposal by a funeral company to build a crematorium next to Majdanek, which claimed perhaps as many as 300,000 lives, with many of the victims’ remains incinerated in seven ovens.

Abraham Foxman, national director of the New-York based Jewish organisation the Anti-Defamation League, and Holocaust survivor, described the plans by the company Styks as “reprehensible” and “outrageously insensitive”, and urged local authorities to halt the development.
