The leaflet connected to the former Labour leader’s brother compared the UK’s corona vaccination program with the Nazis’ genocidal regime.

Former United Kingdom Labour Party head Jeremy Corbyn’s brother Piers was arrested in late January for posters bearing his name that criticize vaccines using an image of the Auschwitz death camp, where the Nazis slaughtered close to a million Jews during the Holocaust.
Piers’ brother, Jeremy Corbyn, was forced to step down from his post as head of Labour after getting trounced in national elections following an anti-Semitism scandal that rocked the very core of his far-left faction.
Piers Corbyn is an anti-vaccination activist and “came up with the ‘concept idea’ for the poster which depicts Auschwitz, but changes its infamous phrase at its gate from ‘Arbeit Macht Frei’, meaning ‘work sets you free’, to ‘vaccines are safe path to freedom,'” Jewish News reported.
“Police confirmed ‘officers investigating reports of malicious material in the form of a leaflet being circulated in south London in late January have made two arrests,'” Jewish News added, referring to the Corbyn arrest.
The report continued, “The leaflet contained material that appeared to compare the Covid-19 vaccination program with the Holocaust.”
Another member of the Labour party, Neil Coyle, reported the leaflet to the police, commenting he was “absolutely sickened by anti-vax conspiracy theory crackpot leaflets put through some doors in SE17 today.”
Under Jeremy Corbyn’s stewardship, the Labour party committed “unlawful harassment” against Jews, according to a 130-page report by the UK’s Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHCR).
Corbyn flat out denied the EHRC’s findings and blamed a “political conspiracy” for the investigation, prompting his suspension from the party, though he was reinstated in short order.
The anti-Semitism that festered on Corbyn’s watch did not evade reproach from some of the biggest leaders in the Jewish community.
The late Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks, who served as the Chief Rabbi of Great Britain for 22 years, wrote of Corbyn in 2019, “Under his leadership, and the semi-respectable sheen of anti-Zionism — let’s have a Rainbow Nation with Hamas! — the poison spreads. The libel that the Jews are the enemy of everything holy (formerly Christ, now socialism) has returned.”
In a 2018 interview with The New Statesman, Rabbi Sacks warned that Corbyn gives “support to racists, terrorists and dealers of hate, who want to kill Jews and remove Israel from the map,” adding that the Labour leader uses “the language of classic pre-war European anti-Semitism.”
