Germany has launched an angry broadside against Hollywood stars who used an international newspaper ad to compare its treatment of Scientologists to Hitler's persecution of Jews.

On Friday, German politicians and Jewish leaders angrily rejected the accusations, calling them politically irresponsible, demagogic and an insult to victims of the Holocaust.

But Germany's former Olympic fencing coach says he was persecuted for being a Scientologist - so much that he and his family left the country for good.
