NIGEL Farage today launched Ukip's new EU poster advocating a leave vote in the upcoming EU referendum. Twitter users were quick to point out, however, that it looked rather...familiar.

The poster, which was branded as disgusting by Nicola Sturgeon, features a line of Syrian refugees fleeing from a war-zone, with the call to "take back controls of our borders".

After images were posted online it wasn't long until twitter user Brendan Harkin noticed that the image used happened to look an awful lot like something that had recently featured in "Auschwitz: The Nazis and 'The Final Solution", a six-part BBC documentary currently available on Netflix.

The screenshots are from a piece of Nazi propaganda highlighted in the documentary. Uncanny.
