Out of respect to the victims of Nazi war crimes, please change the name of your gigantic new ship, the Pieter Schelte, named after your father, a former officer in the murderous Waffen SS and diehard member of the Nazi party.

Shell should be ashamed of itself. And the owner of this ship should be ashamed of his father's actions. Instead, the owner honors his father's actions, and Shell is supporting him.

Fils d'un homme torturé par la Gestapo, petit fils de paysans pauvres ayant planqué des juifs, neveu d'une Juste des Nations déportée à Buchenwald, officier de marine de réserve, je hurle mon indignation.

I am outraged that the Swiss press, especially the press of the Canton of Fribourg where the company is located, have not commented. For other shady commercial dealings in Fribourg, see my blog thecatholictaxhaven.com

Quote: It "is an affront to the relatives of tens of millions of souls who perished at the hands of Nazi Germany, the most evil regime in history. Many innocent victims, including children, died in the most horrific circumstances in the gas ovens at Nazi concentration camps."

Participer à un génocide est une "tache" indélébile sur la mémoire d'une victime de même que pour le bourreau. La mort pour le premier, 6 millions de fois, l'opprobre pour tous ces bourreaux repentants ou non.
