EXCLUSIVE: Read the racist handwritten note a tradie left a man whose parents were murdered at Auschwitz, after he was called out for parking a van in his driveway
- A tradie lashed out at ‘Jews’ for occupying parking spaces
- The tradie had parked his ute in front of a resident’s driveway.
- The resident left Tradie a note denouncing the selfish act.
- Tradie responded with vile accusations about the Jews.
A shopkeeper called out for illegal parking on a residential road in Melbourne has responded in the vilest of ways.
The shopkeeper had blocked access to the elderly couple’s home, which is located a stone’s throw from Elsternwick’s Adass Jewish School, southeast of Melbourne’s CBD.
Stunned by the tradie’s reckless contempt, the couple posted a note on the windshield of their ute reading: ‘Why are you parked in front of our driveway? How selfish can you be?’
A dealer left this vile letter on the windscreen of a resident whose driveway he had blocked in the heart of Melbourne’s largest Jewish community.
Hours later, the couple were stunned and frightened when they found the letter taped to the windshield of their own car, which was parked in an open garage on the property.
‘Because the Jews occupied the entire parking lot and I had a job to do,’ the note said.
The couple, who asked not to be named for fear of retaliation, are sadly unfamiliar with racist attacks.
The couple’s parents had been victims of the Nazis during World War II, and the parents and siblings of one of them were murdered in Auschwitz, the notorious Nazi death camp.
Dr. Dvir Abramovich, chairman of the Anti-Defamation Commission, criticized the merchant’s racist attack on the couple.
“Anti-Semitism rears its ugly head in the most unusual circumstances, and here is yet another example of singling out people of Jewish faith becoming the norm in Melbourne,” he told Daily Mail Australia on Tuesday.
“Instead of admitting that he made a mistake by blocking the residents’ driveway, this individual chose to go to the racism playbook and blame the lack of parking space on the Jewish community.”
The shopkeeper’s car prevented elderly Elsternwick residents from leaving their home.
Dr. Dvir Abramovich, Chairman of the Anti-Defamation Commission, is alarmed by the continuing attacks on the Jewish community.
Elsternwick is home to one of the largest Jewish communities in Australia and is home to the Holocaust Jewish Centre, the Kadimah Jewish Cultural Center and the Elsternwick National Library and Classic Cinema.
“I wonder if any of your clients who are Jewish realize that you harbor such negative and demeaning feelings about them,” Dr. Abramovich said.
“No wonder this couple, who lost their family in the Holocaust to the Nazis, are shocked and scared after this man walked into their garage and left this intimidating note.”
The disgusting incident is the latest in a long line of anti-Semitic attacks on Melbourne’s Jewish community.
In December, Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews banned the display of the Nazi symbol and is in talks with Jewish leaders to ban the Nazi salute.
Dr. Abramovich said that such incidents scar and traumatize the Jewish community as a whole, not just individual victims.
“At a time of skyrocketing anti-Semitism that is spreading like wildfire across the country, any expression of religious intolerance is totally unacceptable and a direct affront to the values of inclusion and sense of belonging that are central to our way. of multicultural life,” he said. .
THE HORRORS OF AUSCHWITZ
Auschwitz-Birkenau, near the city of Oswiecim, in what was then occupied Poland.
Auschwitz-Birkenau was a concentration and extermination camp used by the Nazis during World War II.
The camp, which was located in Nazi-occupied Poland, was made up of three main sites.
Auschwitz I, the original concentration camp, Auschwitz II-Birkenau, a combined concentration and extermination camp, and Auschwitz III-Monowitz, a labor camp, with 45 other satellite sites.
Auschwitz, photographed in 1945, was liberated by Soviet troops after around 1.1 million people were murdered in the Nazi death camp.
Auschwitz was a death camp used by the Nazis in Poland to murder more than 1.1 million people, most of them Jews.
Birkenau became an important part of the Nazis’ ‘Final Solution’, in which they sought to rid Europe of its Jewish population.
An estimated 1.3 million people were sent to Auschwitz-Birkenau.
Since 1947 it has functioned as the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum, which in 1979 was named a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
