The name 'Hitler' and the word 'beauty' should never be used in a sentence together, that is unless you're a raving anti-Semite with a hateful agenda....

An Adolf Hitler-loving social media site in Russia, VKontakte, has been promoting an online beauty pageant dubbed 'Miss Hitler 2014' where they've asked women from Russia and other Eastern European countries to send in racy Nazi-themed photos of themselves, alongside a caption that describes their ineffable love of the infamous Nazi dictator, and their contempt for the Jewish people.

The beauty pageant so far features 24 contestants who have entered the contest, created by the group of Russian and Ukrainian Hitler-lovers.

VKontake currently has over 7,500 followers.

The competition is officially called Miss Ostland, the name of the Eastern European territory Nazis occupied during World War II where over a million Jews were murdered at the hands of the Nazis. As described on the social media site, the contestant who receives the most "likes" will be declared Miss Hitler 2014, and will receive a piece of jewelry from a company called 'Magic Workshop.'

The piece will feature a Nordic rune that Hitler, Heinrich Himmler, and the entire SS were quite fond of.

Second place offers a pendant that features the German Iron Cross and Third Reich heraldry.

As reported by the Daily Mail, the following are the official requirements to enter the anti-Semitic, anti-homosexual, and essentially anti-everyone-that-isn't-German, competition:

1 Be a woman

2. Be a Nazi.

3. Be a woman Nazi.

4. Be a woman who hates Jews.

5. Be a member of the Hitler” VKontakte group.

6. Post a sexy Nazi pic.

7. Get other Nazis to like your pic.

8. Don’t insult other women’s pictures.

Some of the contestants in the offensive beauty pageant include Katya Shkredova, from Mogilev, Belarus, who sent a photo of herself wearing a Nazi hat, and said that she "adores" Hitler because of his "experiments" on people, Elena Bernatskaya from Kiev, Ukraine (leading the contest with 76 likes) who wrote, "Don't forget! Adolf is his name, he's our eternal race, he has been given eternal life," Ekaterina Matveeva from St. Petersburg, Russia, who said "Adolf Hitler's position is genius and true, that races are different not only in appearance, but also in intelligence," and others.

Naturally, the competition has sparked absolute outrage on condemnation in the news, on Twitter, and other outlets.

On Sunday, the competition was suspended "due to calls to violent actions," as stated on the VKontakte site.
