On Tuesday, January 3rd, Britain’s Daily Mail Newspaper ran the headline, ‘Fury at Hounour for Nazi fighters’.

The honor is to be given out by the Estonian government to former Waffen SS – Hitler’s multi-national fighting force.

A day later, the story disappeared from the Daily Mail’s website with no explanation as to why. Sources tell The Algemeiner that Estonian government officials intervened in the name of national security, in an attempt to stop a domestic narrative from becoming international in scope.

“What the Estonians are most afraid of is the international press or audience would become aware of this Nazi collaboration, this non-logical action.  They have two views of history, one for domestic consumption and one for the international audience.  For the international audience, you will only hear about Soviet influence, but the domestic audience includes the Waffen SS story”, said Petri Krohn.

Krohn is the Chairman of a group called Finland Without Nazism, and he took the picture you see in this post of Estonian Waffen SS celebrating the 65th anniversary of  Germany’s 1944 victory at the battle of Tannenberg Line.

Below is a JPEG Image of the article published in the January 3rd print edition of The Daily Mail.

The Algemeiner contacted The Daily Mail in relation to this story and they have yet to respond.
