Religious News: Hitler Themed Hotel Raises Jewish Concerns

Danube, BelgradeJerusalem ( – The Anti-Defamation League is demanding that a Belgrade hotel remove the large portrait of Adolf Hitler and change the theme of its most popular suite.

The Mr. President Hotel, in Belgrade, Serbia, offers hotel rooms named after past or present world leaders. Among them is the $200-a-night Hitler suite, where a portrait of the uniformed German dictator, with a swastika on his arm, hangs on the wall over the king-sized bed.

Other suites honor President George W. Bush, his father, former President George H.W. Bush, former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, Cuban Leader Fidel Castro, former Russian dictator Joseph Stalin and former Yugoslavian communist dictator Josip Broz Tito.

But the Hitler room, number 501, reportedly is the most popular and is occupied mainly by German, Croat and Slovenian guests, hotel owner Dusan Zabunovic was quoted as saying.

The Anti-Defamation League has appealed to the Zabunovic to remove Hitler’s portrait and change the suite’s theme before International Holocaust Remembrance Day on Sunday.
