The biggest ship in the world forbidden to wear the name of the father of its creator

November 8 2008

Dutchman Edwin Heerema no luck: he decided to build the world's largest kobral and even found it for $ 1.7 billion, but human rights organizations have banned him to call the ship the way he planned.

Originally Heerema intended give ship name Piter sheltie "in honor her recently deceased father Maritime engineer. All zagvozka lies in the fact that at one time Sheltie collaborated with the SS, the mere mention of which provokes a very strong reaction from society. Ronnie Naftaniel, head of the local organization for the prevention of anti-Semitism in the Netherlands, said: "In memory of those who fell victim to the fascist regime, that ship should not call the name of the person collaborated with the Germans. Neither now, nor ever in the future," - transmits AP.
