Brussels surgeon suspended for allegedly abusing Jew
Surgeon, Dr. Frank H. of UZ Brussel acknowledges in an e-mail to Jewish News that he wrote about is regrettable with his anti-Semitic remarks towards a fellow assistant
A hospital in Brussels on Monday suspended one of its surgeons for allegedly hurling Nazi slogans and racial slurs at a Jewish colleague.
The surgeon later offered apologies via emails sent to the management of the hospital, Universitair Ziekenhuis Brussel, and to Belgium’s main Jewish publication which first reported on the incident, Joods Actueel.
The surgeon reportedly called out “sieg heil” and told his Dutch-born, Jewish subordinate to “head back into the gas chambers,” according to a complaint which the Jewish doctor filed with the Center for Equal Opportunities, a watchdog on discrimination.
The incident reportedly happened on Monday morning at the hospital during an argument between the suspended physician - specializing in orthopedic surgery - and the younger Dutch-born doctor.
