Two Turkish history students were handed a six-month suspended jail term Monday for giving the Nazi salute at the former Auschwitz death camp, Polish police said.
The 22-year-old man and woman were detained on Sunday while taking pictures of each other performing the salute at the gates of the former Nazi German death camp in the southern Polish city of Oswiecim.
The two were found guilty of “propagating Nazism” and “desecrating a place of memory”, regional police spokesman Mariusz Ciarka said, according to the Polish news agency PAP.
