IT was with considerable consternation that I found a double-page advertisement by ATV in your newspaper, showing a full-page photo of Adolf Hitler accompanied by a most distasteful text.

I find the printing of such an advertisement extremely tasteless and want to express my strong feeling of disapproval.

The advertisement not only lacks sensibility vis-a-vis a dark chapter of the German past and towards European history, but also hurts the feelings of the many victims of totalitarianism and fascism.
