Germany routed Brazil, 7-1 in today's World Cup semifinal. Many were sad. Others saw the opportunity for Holocaust jokes.
We saw something similar with the Nazi references on Twitter during the Germany-U.S. match. But today's round of jokes went a little further.
Germany just scored it's 6th goal😳 and the nazi's killed 6 million people😰 call me crazy but I think they are trying to have a holocaust 2.0

There were also Hitler references:
If Germany gets 8 goals they gonna unlock Hitler
— Antonio Gates (@TheDouch3) July 8, 2014
Did Hitler come back from the grave and give Germany a motivational speech because DAMN. 🇩🇪
— Young Link.™ (@LerstingEvans) July 8, 2014

And Anne Frank jokes:
Germany guy was about to beat that Brazilian dude like he was Anne Frank
— MATT (@TheMattHaslem) July 8, 2014
Neymar hiding from Germany like Ann Frank
— Shooter McGavin (@dorito_badito) July 8, 2014

Anne frank stood a better chance against Germany
— eggplant (@3rdickwad) July 8, 2014
The last time Germany were this efficient Anne Frank had to hide in a loft.

Others were offensive on multiple levels:
first Germany got away with the Holocaust, now they're getting away with rape
— jugg (@Jugg3rNog) July 8, 2014
Germany hasn't raped anyone this bad since the holocaust
— Thomas Müller☪ (@AmirNikezic) July 8, 2014
This one made minimal sense:
Germany disguised hitler and put him in the starting lineup today.
— Ryan Rabenold (@RyanRabenold) July 8, 2014
It was enough to make you wonder: Is there a good Holocaust-referencing joke to be made? Max Silvestri managed the feat:
Probably already some Germans denying this many goals were scored. "The number of 5 is exaggerated."
