The banner appeared at Wiadukt Hetmański in Poznań, on Tuesday. It was removed by police, who confirmed that an investigation is underway.

Andrzej Borowiak, spokesman for Wielkopolska Police, said: “The police conducted a visual inspection and removed the banner. We will try to determine who hung it there. Such [police action] always takes place when someone hangs something in public space.”

Around six million people were murdered by Nazi Germany during the Holocaust, which was carried out during the Second World War mostly on occupied Polish territory. The Poznań banner appears to suggest a similar genocide aimed at Muslims.
