...While many accused the Polish magazine of “fascism” and “fear-mongering”, comparing the cover to WW2 Nazi and Mussolini propaganda.

The magazine joins the growing list of contemporary media outlets which have published questionable headlines and contentious covers in their alarmist reporting on the EU migrant crisis.
