A huge billboard with the picture of the Nazi leader Adolf Hitler in Sofia has been officially complained about by the Israeli Embassy in the Bulgarian capital.

On the advertisement made by an unidentified company (it is also not know what company mounted the billboard), a Third Reich stamp with Hitlers's portrait is portrayed above the slogan "They Speak -You Listen", BGNES reported Tuesday.

On April 20, it will be 120 years since the birth of Hitler. He is seen by many as one of the most evil men in history.

Under Hitler's control Germany started World War 2, which led to the death of 55 million people around the world. He is also blamed for setting up death camps in which over 6 million Jews were murdered.
