anti-Semitism Anti-Semitism in Sweden




There are no amount of words that can adequately describe the outrage. The last time a Swedish work of art caused an outrage, was in 2004 when the acting Israeli Ambassador to Sweden, Zvi Mazel, threw a lamp into the ‘artwork’ of former Israeli Dror Feiler’s, Snow White and the Madness of Truth. The blood in the pool was correctly understood by the Ambassador to be the blood of Jews, murdered by the woman who’s picture was in the boat floating on top of the pool.

This latest outrage, by Martin Bryder, is over the ashes that he the stole from the  Majdanek extermination camp, and used them in a painting, being displayed in a gallery in Lund Sweden. I really am speechless over this a-hole’s theft of the ashes and the use of them in a commercial piece of art.

Stunning evil.

A Swedish art gallery owner has defended his gallery’s decision to show a painting made out of Holocaust victims’ ashes as “having no moral flaws.”

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.

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.”

  1. How horrific and ghoulish. Hausswolff has not only stolen human ashes but for 20 years has been toying with the remains of many helpless people brutally murdered. I have to wonder if he and Bryder are necrophiliacs since neither has a clue where they have gone wrong. They are very twisted people and surely there must be some very strict laws broken. The ashes must be returned to their resting place as soon as possible!

  2. This is disgusting. How do you even come up with stuff like this? What a perverted mind. How low can you go! He has no respect for the dead.

  3. Too many academics need to learn lessons of harsh reality. The stable experimental atmosphere of academia causes the human mind to atrophy, a predictable consequence, a moral slippery slope seen not only in universities but across stable peaceful trauma-free societies as a whole. It’s as if human nature finds its way to create horrors when life is too easy.
