Wiesenthal Center condemns Foreign Ministry over Polish exhibition

The Foreign Ministry came under attack from an unusual direction on Monday, as the Simon Wiesenthal Center denounced its involvement in a Polish art exhibition that some believe trivializes the Holocaust.

The exhibition, “Poland – Israel – Germany: The Experience of Auschwitz,” on display at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Krakow, showcases a number of works that have raised Jewish hackles, including a video installation in which naked people play tag inside a gas chamber.

“We were quite shocked and disturbed to hear that this exhibition, which includes one of the most offensive and disgusting videos relating to the crimes of the Holocaust, is being run in partnership with the Israeli Embassy,” Dr. Efraim Zuroff, the center’s chief Nazi hunter, told The Jerusalem Post.
