They have only just stopped baptising victims of the Jewish concentration camps.
 http://www.usatoday.com/news/religion/story/2012-03-05/mormons-proxy-baptism-holocaust-jews/53372816/1
The Mormon practice known as "baptism for the dead" involves living people being baptized on behalf of their dead relatives. Mormons believe it is their moral obligation to do the temple rituals, while those in the hereafter can either accept or reject the ordinance.
In the early 1990s, Jewish representatives complained about the practice, arguing that it disrespected Jews who died in the Holocaust. Mormon leaders agreed to remove them from the list of candidates for baptism, unless they were related to living church members.
The task, however, proved difficult, and many of the names continued to pop up in the database. In 2010, the Mormons assured Jews that a new computer system would help solve the problem.
But it exploded again in recent weeks as reporters published accounts of proxy baptisms for several well-known figures, including the deceased parents of famed Nazi hunter Simon Wiesenthal, and slain Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl.

For example Anne Franke AND Hitler have both been baptised.

Anne Frank's been baptized nine times.

You'd think it'd stick after the first time. If they have to baptize her nine times then it really doesn't count for much. wellduh

At first I was outraged and pretty furious.

Then I found out about the "nine times" bit.

Now I just think it's ridiculous.
