Israeli student group turned away from Louvre

An Israeli educator looking to bring a group of art students to tour cultural sites in France was refused reservations at two separate institutes, resulting in both internal and police investigations.

Tel Aviv University art professor Sefy Hendler attempted to book reservations online at the Louvre and Paris’ Sainte-Chapelle, a medieval church, for a group of twelve of his top proteges only to find that neither could accommodate him. Both are public institutions.

Perplexed, he reapplied in the name of two fictitious schools, one in Abu Dhabi and one in Florence, for the same time slot he had originally wanted, this time meeting with success.
