Belgian television scraps Hitler menu

October 28, 2008|Associated Press

Amid widespread criticism, a Belgian public broadcaster on Monday scrapped a television show on Adolf Hitler's favorite meal.

Belgium's Flemish broadcaster VRT said the episode on Hitler's culinary tastes was "too sensitive" to air and did not fit the series "Plat Prefere" (Favorite Dish), which profiles the favorite foods of famous people.

Other episodes have featured more positively viewed subjects, including British singer Freddie Mercury, opera legend Maria Callas and artist Salvador Dali.

"There was a wrong perception that the show about Hitler would humanize or, worse, glorify" Hitler, VRT said on its website.
