A BNP candidate in next week’s European elections has questioned the scale of the Holocaust and believes “dentistry and plastic surgery” were positives to come out of the concentration camps.
Marlene Guest, standing to represent Rotherham in the Yorkshire and Humber region, appeared in the Sky One documentary “BNP Wives”.
Leaders of Yorkshire’s Jewish communities have condemned her selection, calling it “horrendous and offensive”.
In the programme, broadcast in January 2008, Mrs Guest was asked about the Shoah and the number of people who died.
