British publisher Martin Kitson, 42, is living in fear of death threats after his travel guide to Poland listed a notorious Nazi death camp commandant as a local hero.
Londoner Kitson, – who lives in Sopot, Poland – made the printing error in his best selling In Your Pocket guide under a heading for Poznan, occupied by Germany in World War II.
It lists brutal Auschwitz commandant Arthur Liebehenschel under a heading that should have read ‘Local Heroes and Villains.’ (…)
But there was a slip at the printers and it came up as ‘Local Heroes’ and now I’ve been inundated with death threats, accusations that I’m a Nazi sympathiser and even my children have been accused. It’s a nightmare,’ he said.
