Dignitas insults Holocaust Victims

Just in case Ludwig Minelli, Europe's very own Dr Death, has not already made his disgraceful attitude to human life too apparent, he has been quoted in The Guardian comparing his patients with Jewish refugees fleeing the Third Reich. Jon Benjamin, a Jewish representative puts it more succintly than I ever could:

Jewish tradition places the sanctity of life above virtually all other tenets of its theology. We have made this clear to the director of public prosecutions in response to his recent consultation. Whatever the professed intentions of Mr Minelli, his comments suggest that not only does Dignitas not share our reverence for human life, but also has scant respect for the memory of those murdered by the Nazis.
