Unidentified passengers aboard a Belgian train used the speaker system to urge Jews to get off at Auschwitz and shower at the concentration camp.

The incident of Jan. 31 prompted the Belgian rail company SNCB to file a complaint with police over incitement to hatred, the RTL broadcaster reported Tuesday.

According to RTL, the suspects gained access to the speaker system during rush hour, at 5 p.m., while traveling from Namur to Brussels. One of the passengers said in French, “Ladies and gentlemen, we are approaching Auschwitz. All Jews are requested to disembark and take a short shower.”

The incident had been reported to Viviane Teitelbaum, a Jewish lawmaker in the assembly of the Brussels region.

Teitelbaum told RTL that the witness to whom she spoke suspected that members from a group of adolescents may have gained access to the keys that conductors use to make announcements over the loudspeakers.

A similar incident occurred in 2012 aboard the same line when the perpetrators, who were never caught, said, “Welcome to this train heading to Auschwitz. All Jews are requested to disembark at Buchenwald.”

  1. Hope God will change them and have love to others! Pray for them though their hatred is very clear! But remember, ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE WITH GOD. One day the will come looking for one Jew to walk as it is written – "This is what the LORD Almighty says, "In those days ten men from all languages and nations will take firm hold of ONE JEW BY THE HEM OF HIS ROBE AND SAY, 'LET US GO WITH YOU, BECAUSE WE HAVE HEARD THAT GOD IS WITH YOU.'" A Word of wisdom!!!

  2. Sometimes, when I look at all the technological and scientific achievements of mankind, I'm in awe that any of it was able to happen when there are still neanderthals walking this earth. Sadly, it will be primitives like the "pranksters" on the train that will threaten to derail it.
