Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nydailynews.com: “Auschwitz Memorial blasts new Amazon show about Nazi hunters”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The Auschwitz Memorial has called a new Amazon Prime show about Nazi hunters “dangerous foolishness” for its historically inaccurate depiction of the Holocaust.

“Hunters,” a show with Al Pacino that premiered over the weekend, features a scene in which concentration camp prisoners are involved in a human chess game. When a piece in the game is eliminated, the prisoner is killed.

"Inventing a fake game of human chess for ‘Hunters’ is not only dangerous foolishness & caricature. It also welcomes future deniers," the memorial said. "We honor the victims by preserving factual accuracy."
