National Geographic has pulled Nazi War Diggers ‘indefinitely’!

Since ‘”consulting with colleagues” at the National Geographic Society’, the National Geographic Channel has pulled Nazi War Diggers ‘indefinitely‘, in order to review ‘questions raised’ during days of mass condemnation for the ‘macabre disrespect’ with which it handled dead bodies.

The channel said in its Friday statement that the Latvian government had approved the team’s work, which took place on Latvian and Polish soil. But the critics contacted the Latvian War Museum, which said in a statement that it had opposed the show. [Clarification: the Latvian War Museum has clarified its statement – it was ‘aware’ of Nazi War Diggers’ plans to excavate.]

National Geographic also said that none of the items dug up during filming would be sold but instead would be donated to war museums. The critics [here] however found a posting on a military collectors’ online forum in which Mr. Gottlieb described locating a Latvian war helmet in June and preparing it for sale [see here and here for even more].

It was intended to be broadcast worldwide (apart from in the USA).
