ANKARA, Turkey -- Turkey's Jewish community was on Monday protesting a Turkish commercial that uses an old film footage of Adolf Hitler to sell shampoo.
The Chief Rabbi's office called Hitler "the most striking example of cruelty and savagery" and said using his image in a commercial was unacceptable in a statement.
The statement also demanded a public apology from the advertising company "to repair the damage this commercial has caused to society's conscience."
The commercial for a men's brand of shampoo has Hitler appear to be shouting in a dubbed-over Turkish voice: "If you are not wearing women's dress, you shouldn't be using women's shampoo either!"
