Neo-Nazi version of Monopoly -- whoever sends most Jews to gas chambers wins

Disclaimer: I am not a fan of the Daily Mail, but this was just...fascinating, in a sick, twisted way

A Neo-Nazi group created a perverted board game based on Monopoly where Jewish people get sent to death camps so they could pass the time between murders.

---snip---

The gang called the game 'Pogromly' - from the word pogrom meaning a violent riot that were often organised against Jews in Russian and eastern Europe over several centuries - and features a skull wearing a German helmet in the centre of the board, S.S. runic flashes and plenty of swastikas.

---snip----

Instead of the four railway stations that feature on every Monopoly board the gang had the name of four notorious concentration and death camps: Auschwitz, Dachau, Ravensbrueck and Buchenwald.

Chance and Community Chest cards had instructions like: 'Go to the next concentration camp and hand in the captured Jews and make the owner pay twice the normal rent.'

4. Maybe since both dad survived the holocaust

and I took a course in the history of antisemitism, I find this far from fascinating. I find it more as a sign of how far we have not evolved as a species. It goes back, in case you wonder, to Greek times. It's changed over the millennia, but fascinating, it has been not fascinating. Scary, yes. And damn it, I own some of this crap. Like the first holocaust denial book ever to come out. I mean the first, and first edition too.

5. You do know what the word means, right?

I am well-versed in anti-Semitism, having taught classes on it. I find it interesting, fascinating, if you will, that the first two comments seem more preoccupied with the use of the word "fascinating" than the actual issue.

10. Highly interesting, captivating.

Apparently, the others took it to mean "charming." To me, it is no different than being "fascinated" by Jack the Ripper stories. It is a forest and trees moment.

19. I'm fascinated by airplane crashes.

I read NTSB reports and watch all the air crash shows. But I'm a pilot and I've always been interested in aviation - especially information that will keep me alive.

9. This is in Germany. I don't know how patent law works.

I can't really provide any insight in what the maker's could or couldn't do in regards to this.

13. I have quickly tried to find more about this, but not having any luck.

(And I have to get dinner ready), but yes, Germany is quite strict when it comes to Nazi crap. What I find astonishing (if I can use that word without it becoming the issue) is that they actually were able to raise enough money by selling them to fund a defense!!?!

17. i'm not surprised , i'm sure there were some who bought it who think it's just a joke

and don't think they are bigots. but there is always something there. just the fact they think it's ok as a joke would indicate a problem.

15. My understanding is it is illegal (there may be a patent issue too, I am not sure).

I don't know how it will affect the trial or charges.

20. Yep. The game would have to have been sold underground.

Man, that the game even exists is just so fucked up...

12. First thought: "Who would even come up with that?"

Second thought: "Oh... right."

Patent issues are going to be the least of their legal woes, with Germany's laws against nazi symbolism and promotion.

21. The fact that Zschšpe is on trial for multiple arsons, bombings, murders, and robberies

might have suggested she has some f'ed-up ideas
