The German constitutional court has ruled that animal rights organisation PETA (People for Ethical Treatment of Animals) must end its campaign in which it draws a comparison between the Holocaust and industrial farming. The court ruled that the PETA campaign, called The Holocaust on your Plate, violated human dignity: "In Germany, the word Holocaust will long remain synonymous with a very specific crime which is beyond any comparison, let alone any attempt to market it with a view to a publicity campaign."

German Court Bans PETA "Holocaust" Campaign
PETA wants to run a campaign that compares factory farming to the Holocaust. Touchy subject there in Germany.
