A nurse lost her job on Facebook with a different lettering for Sachsenhausen concentration camp. The police are also investigating.
The Evangelical Hospital (EVK) Wesel has fired a nurse who reportedly posted a photo on her Facebook account relating to a concentration camp. The hospital confirmed a corresponding report from the “Rheinische Post” on Thursday.
Accordingly, a photo was posted on the bill showing the words “Arbeit macht frei” in the Sachsenhausen concentration camp in an alienated way. Instead of “work makes you free”, the photo said “vaccination makes you free”. The message has since been deleted, the newspaper wrote.
Investigation of suspected sedition
The incident is now also a concern of the police. According to the Duisburg prosecutor’s office, the police have started an investigation into suspicion of sedition.
Such posts on social media show a gross disregard for Christian values, said EVK management and operations management upon request. It is also a violation of the duty of loyalty to an employer rooted in church and diakonia.
Immediately after assessing the situation, the EVK investigated its options for action under employment law and now used it accordingly. “The care and nurse concerned is no longer employed by EVK Wesel,” said the message Wednesday. “To belittle the unimaginable crimes committed by the National Socialists and the suffering of the victims in the context of the current pandemic debate,” said Heino ten Brink, CEO of EVK.
