An employee of a Nazi death camp museum was arrested and charged with anti-Semitism after he caught putting up anti-Jewish posters at bus stops, police in Poland said.

Lublin Police said that the suspect was arrested along with five other men.

The six suspects were arrested on Thursday, and were accused of incitement to hatred. Three of the suspects were caught putting up posters at bus stops reading “Zionists Leave Lublin,” police said in a statement.

One of the men were identified as 50-year-old Krzysztof K. The man worked as a graphic designer at Majdanek.

K. worked at the museum for more than 20 years, and police found anti-Semitic slogans on his office equipment.

“We have launched an internal investigation at the museum. Administration has decided to suspend him from his duties until the matter is clarified,” a spokesperson for the museum said.

Police said that the group has been putting anti-Semitic posters around the city since 2010.

They face up to seven and a half years in prison if convicted.
