A village in the U.K. has angered the Jewish community after agreeing to reinstate a sign saying “Hitler’s Walk.”
The sign for a park overlooking Mevagissey village was taken down by the now-defunct Restormel Council in 2005 after complaints that it was inappropriate.
Now Mevagissey Parish Council has ordered a new sign for the park. They say that that is what local people call the park, according to the BBC.
Harvey Kurzfield, of Kehillat Kernow, which represents the Jewish community of Cornwall, said the sign was “outrageous”.
The park, on a sloping area a little smaller than a soccer field at the top of an place called Polkirt Hill, was named in the 1930s after a dictatorial local councilor, who was nicknamed “Hitler.”
