The Czech Republic dropped a criminal complaint based on a Holocaust joke on a Czech Internet site. The complaint was filed by the head of the Terezin Memorial, Jan Munk, against an unknown perpetrator. The site featured drawings of people entering a gate of a former concentration camp with a sign VyHubeni (Ejected), making an allusion to the Czech Republic’s most popular television program, the Big Brother-style reality show VyVoleni (Elected). The pictures were removed after Munk complained.
