Paper sorry for Holocaust ad error

`A German newspaper has apologised for accidentally placing a utility company advertisement for “the gas of tomorrow” inside a full-page story on the Nazi killing of Sinti (Gypsy) people in Auschwitz concentration camp.

The Landeszeitung Lueneburg said on its website today it had not noticed that the article about a local exhibition describing the fate of the Sinti in Hitler’s Germany appeared on the same page as an advert for utility company E.ON which read: “E.ON is taking care of the gas of tomorrow, today.”‘
