So far, 14 women from several countries in Eastern Europe and Russia have posted their photos who as contestats are also encouraged to caption their photos with why they “love and revere the Third Reich of Adolf Hitler.”
The page’s more than 7,000 followers continuously update it with photos of leaders of the Nazi regime in addition to historical trivia biased toward the fascist regime.
The winner will receive a piece of jewelry with Third Reich emblems, Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported.
