Unbelievable: Swedish 'artist' uses ashes from Holocaust victims in 'painting' (UPDATED)
It is difficult to think of a worse desecration of the bodies and memories of Holocaust victims. If he had taken the body of a dead Muslim terrorist and done this, there would be millions of Muslims in the streets protesting, and the West would be taking their side. But in Sweden, where new blood libels against Jews are issued every day, this and other disgusting displays are considered 'art.'
This 'artist' deserves to die a slow and painful death starting now. The 'museum' that is displaying this 'art' should be ground into dust. And after those Jews who wish to leave have left, Sweden ought to be napalmed. There is simply no excuse for this, and there are no limits to the Swedes' anti-Semitism.
UPDATE 7:20 PM
Of course. The Swedish gallery sees nothing wrong with this....
Martin Bryder, who owns a gallery in Lund, told Sverige Radio that he “sees no moral problem or flaw with exhibiting” a painting which the artist Carl Michael von Hausswolff made from ashes of Holocaust victims from the Majdanek extermination camp.These Swedes are so dense it's amazing.... If I took a Swede's body, burnt it and put the ashes on display in the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, do you think they might get it?
According to a local newspaper, Sydsvenskan, Von Hausswolff had collected the ashes more than 20 years ago. The exhibition is scheduled to open at the Martin Bryder Gallery in Lund on Dec. 15, according to the radio station.
Salomon Schulman, a teacher of Yiddish and member of Lund’s Jewish community, wrote in the same local newspaper that he found the display “disgusting” and called it “a desecration of Jewish bodies.”
He added: “Nowhere was the Third Reich more popular than among the educated academics. Today, the Holocaust and racism are still part of their salon talks.”
The directorate of the museum at Majdanek is outraged by the art. "We are deeply shocked and outraged by the information that the painting allegedly was made with the ashes of Majdanek victims. This action is an artistic provocation deserving only to be condemned," said a statement published on Wednesday by the museum staff.
"In addition, it is certain that the Swedish painter did not enter into possession of the ashes legally."
Andrzej Fijolek of the Lublin police told JTA that the police have not opened an investigation into how the artist came into possession of the ashes, since no complaint has been filed.
