A French court fined a man €700 for sending abusive letters to Jews in France reading "Jews are worth Cyklon-B," the gas Nazi's used to kill Jews during the Holocaust. The man, Emanuel Rist, was accused of sending letters containing pictures of stars of David and cylinders containing the deadly gas. The letters were sent to two local newspapers, a local Jewish organization and two members of the Jewish community. Rist has also been accused of violent attacks towards Jews in France.
