I was sent a link to a campaign video about our libraries: it is an adaptation of a national campaign video about libraries. Since then the press have picked up the story and quote the Leader of the County Council condemning me. If I have caused offence by linking to this film then sincere apologies. I had the following statement below which has been on my blog since I added the link. It gave a warning and tried to set the film in some context. I am grateful for the initial comments on the Citizen website. Indeed my great grandparents were Jewish and I certainly have no intentions of causing offence.
Please be aware that this contains a 2004 war film of Hitler's last days. There is no intention to diminish or disrespect the horrors of that time. Worth checking out is Godwin's law as he suggested that "in any online discussion—regardless of topic or scope— someone inevitably criticizes some point made in the discussion by comparing it to beliefs held by Hitler and the Nazis." Of course Glos County Council are not anywhere close to the Third Reich!! But the disregard of people's wishes and the expected impact on vulnerable people is shocking to many of us.
