A social media post has been labelled “vicious” and “nasty” after a photo of Hitler was placed next to one of a prominent Jewish community leader.
The Facebook post was uploaded on Saturday by Perth-based auction house JB Military Antiques along with an article that raised concerns over a large amount of Nazi memorabilia that it had listed for sale.
A photo of Anti-Defamation Commission chairman and Jewish community leader Dr Dvir Abramovich, who had condemned the auction of at least 23 Nazi items and more than 130 other German World War II military artefacts, was posted alongside one of Hitler.
Dr Abramovich said the social media post was an “ugly, nasty and hateful slur” that was inciting personal abuse and giving people a space to spew vitriol against him.
JB Military Antiques owner and auctioneer Jamey Blewitt said the pictures were not intended to discredit Dr Abramovich or associate
