Somebody has placed the following advertisement on the jobs wanted section of That's Beijing's website, together with the image reproduced here:
Frau Rebecca,

I am a 117 year old German expat who is looking for a teaching job in das Chaoyang District. Preferably in ein Kindergarten. I have international experience from my previous job where I had the chance to go from London to Moscow. Im a people person and have taken over my fair share. I prefer speaking the language of the Fatherland but I am also fluent in Austrian and Swiss. If I sound like somebody you might want, i DEMAND you hire me. Oh ja, I have been responsible for the deaths of millions of people over the years, but I am white which is basically all you care about anyways.

Danke,

Adolf Hitler

UPDATE: The plot grows thicker: it seems the first job ad was a hoax -- this email was forwarded to Danwei by That's Beijing:

My name is Rebecca. Yesterday there is a person used my name and my company's LOGO and sent a fake ad. which is as below. It is not true. I hope you can put it down and lock this person's ID. Or else he or she may be still send some fake ad which will make my reputation down. Thank for very much.
