What's in a name? Quite a lot, actually

We seem to have a soft spot for bad boys. Can you imagine a visitor to Israel coming across such place names as Himmler's Way, or maybe Eichmann's Cove?

It's shameful that a country that calls itself independent should still have places named after those pack of robbers who lived in luxury on the blood, sweat and tears of the peasants that they exploited and dominated in those dark, distant days.
