This story was brought to my attention by Montreal resident Sam Margulies and I'm glad he made a point of speaking out against a poster of Hitler at the Montreal Auto Show.
Margulies lost family during the Second World War and was shocked that a poster of Hitler was on display at the Palais des Congres. He was also insulted and I completely agree with him.
Margulies contacted the people who ran the show and he was told they respected his opinion but they decided to display posters of people who marked a particular time in history, such as Martin Luther King Jr, John F Kennedy and Hitler.
Margulies feels, and I agree with him, that they might as well have put up a poster of Lee Harvey Oswald.
It makes little sense to me that this Hitler posted needed to be on display. If I'm at a car show, I'm not expecting to see a depiction of one of the worst mass murderers in the history of the world!
And you probably noticed I didn't attach a picture of the poster to this blog. I've seen enough of that face.
