Man wearing pro-Holocaust sweatshirt amid Capitol rioters

Washington, DC - As photos from Wednesday’s riot at the U.S. Capitol circulated in the news and on social media, a number of people jumped on Twitter seeking to identify rioters with neo-Nazi ties, while a number were aghast at photos of a man with what appeared to be a pro-Holocaust sweatshirt celebrating “Camp Auschwitz.

The man in the "Camp Auschwitz" sweatshirt, which appeared to be initially taken from ITV News, alarmed enough people for the allusion to the notorious Nazi concentration camp to trend on Wednesday night.

An observer, who caught a photo of the man outside the capital, revealed the "Work Brings Freedom" slogan (a translation of the "Arbeit Macht Frei" sign that infamously marked the concentration camp's entrance), with a single, pointed word on the back: "Staff."

And author Jeff Sharlet had some other troubling details about the mob tied to this photo, including the assertion that "Fox News broadcast without comment video of a man carrying a sign saying 'No foreskin, no peace.'"

Self-proclaimed "free speech activist" Nathan Bernard alleged, "Holocaust denier Nick Fuentes and neo-nazi loser Baked Alaska both live-streamed from Pelosi's office after storming the capitol. Neither have been arrested." A connected tweet showed video of Baked Alaska "ejected from Capitol building by SWAT team as coup attempt implodes."
