Jewish groups expressed outrage on Monday after a newspaper in Estonia published a fake advert that they said disrespected victims of the Holocaust.

The Eesti Ekspress, a popular daily in the Baltic nation, ran a piece in its satirical pages that used notorious war criminal Josef Mengele and the Nazi concentration camp Buchenwald to sell weight-loss pills.



"One, two, three: Dr. Mengele’s diet pills work miracles on you," it read. "There were no fatties in Buchenwald."

Local members of the small Jewish community lambasted the publication saying it was an example of the country's "major problems with moral and ethical values."
