    A teenager whose offensive comments about Jews were published online has been given a particularly fitting punishment.

    The Dutch 18-year-old, referred to as Omar E in court, has been sentenced to community service at the Holocaust hiding place of Jewish diarist Anne Frank.

    He had told the website GeenStijl that he believed Jewish people should be exterminated.

    Despite a claim by Omar E’s lawyer that the case should not even have come to court because of the negative publicity his client had faced, a judge ruled that the teenager should do16 hours of community service.

    He specified that Omar E should carry this out at the Anne Frank House, now a centre for Holocaust memorial and for challenging antisemitism and discrimination.

    The GeenStijl site, which has previously provoked controversy for hosting provocative and extremist content, attracts around 75,000 visitors every day.
