The “Communist” room at the Villa Love Hotel in Thailand has ignited fury among Jewish leaders for featuring Nazi images.

The room which showcases two enormous pictures of Adolph Hitler and a large swastika painting was first reported by the British tabloid The Sun. The room also contains images associated with Communism.

The room is reportedly one of the hotel’s most popular.

“It’s horrendous, absolutely disgusting,” said Efraim Zuroff, head of the Simon Wiesenthal Center. It shows a complete lack of knowledge and education about Hitler, the harm he caused and the horrifying crimes that he committed in World War II.”

Rabbi Abraham Cooper, also of the  Simon Wiesenthal Center, said the room was “beyond the pale.”

“The idea that anyone can view Hitler as some kind of iconic figure worthy of decorating a hotel room with is disgusting,” he said.

The hotel features a number of other ‘themed’ rooms, including Cowboy, Hollywood and Matrix  among others, The Sun reports.
