WARSAW, Poland (AP) — A police spokesman in eastern Poland says an Israeli teen has admitted to dropping his pants at the former Nazi German death camp of Majdanek and is facing a fine.
Andrzej Fijolek said Monday the 17-year-old, whose identity has not been released, was caught on CCTV cameras as he let down his pants by one of the wooden barracks at the Majdanek museum while on a school trip there Friday.
Museum wardens notified the police and the teen confessed to the act during questioning. A court is expected to fine him for desecrating a memorial site.
From late 1941 until mid-1944, Germany’s Nazi regime killed some 80,000 of Majdanek’s 150,000 inmates, who were mostly Jews, but also included Poles, Belarusians, Ukrainians and Russians.
