December 28, 2012

“As far as the Jews were concerned, Hitler’s only ‘prayer’ was that they be wiped off the face of the earth,” the group’s Israel director, Efraim Zuroff, said in a statement.

Fabio Cavallucci, director of the Center for Contemporary Art, which approved the art said, “There is no intention from the side of the artist or the center to insult Jewish memory.”

“It’s an artwork that tries to speak about the situation of hidden evil everywhere,” he said.

Warsaw was the ghetto area sealed off by the Nazis after they invaded Poland and forced Jews into deportation to war camps.
