Netflix blasted for filming Stranger Things in Nazi prison – sparking 'Holocaust erasure' petition | The Sun


NETFLIX have been blasted for filming Stranger Things in the Nazi prison – which has sparked a 'Holocaust erasure' petition for viewers to sign.

Fans of the show have already binge watched the fourth season of the programme.

But many probably didn't know that they shot part of the new seriesa Lithuanian prison named Lukiškės Prison – which was held "accountable for their Holocaust erasure".

The institution is known for it's Nazi involvement and the death of 100,000 Jews, Rroma, and political prisoners.

The streaming service and the show have joined forces to turn the prison into an Airbnb hotel for fans to stay in themed cells – which can cost between €104-114 a night.

But that is not the only thing available to do.

There is also a tour of the Stranger Things building available to attend, as well as make waffles.

Jews and Rroma Against Bigotry started up a petition to hold both the streaming service and programme accountable for their choices.

So far over 57,000 people have signed a petition to stop this from happening.

The petition page states that fans of Stranger Things have started getting numerical tattoos on their arms, which are inspired by the show, and their official page has even reposted them on their account.

But this "mocks the trauma of the Jewish and Rroma community" and "further desecrates the living memories of Holocaust survivors".

The petition states: "We, Jews and Rroma, call you to sign this petition and hold Stranger Things and Netflix accountable for their Holocaust erasure.

"Money earned from this season should be put back into the Jewish and Rromani communities of Lithuania as reparations for the damage this season is causing and a public apology from Airbnb, Netflix, and Stranger Things should be issued immediately with a full understanding as to how this adds to the erasure of the victims of the Holocaust and the ongoing persecution of Romani communities. 

"We also demand the immediate shut down of the Airbnb.

"We will not be erased. The Holocaust is not for the entertainment industry to build wealth off of and turn into theatre.
