Update: Gallery Backs Down, What Next?
The Simon Wiesenthal Center has reported that the Martin Bryder Gallery in Lund has ceased to display its vile "ash-painting" which used actual human remains stolen from the Majdanek Nazi death camp in Poland:
After an international outcry led by the Swedish Jewish community, the Simon Wiesenthal Center, and other activists, a Swedish gallery has taken down an exhibit of a painting that used ashes of Holocaust victims. The painting, by Swedish artist Carl Michael von Hausswolff, contained ashes stolen by him from the Majdanek death camp in Poland
The question now is whether the "artist", CM von Hausswolff, will restore the ashes to the memorial site and apologize for his actions. If he does not do this himself, no one in Sweden will, since the Swedish authorities have declined to pursue the matter. Once again, the liberal-minded regime has dropped the ball. And worse, they agree with many voices in the talkbacks to press reports that these ashes are only meaningless matter. When the Swedish authorities did this they accepted the Nazi proposition that a heap of ash is only an insignificant heap of ash, even if those ashes are the remains of human lives. Shame on all of them.
