Dancing at Auschwitz?

An Australian woman took her Holocuast survivor father and three children to Poland and they filmed themselves dancing at the sites of the Shoah.

It it art, as she says? Not that I can see, but I'm not an expert. Is it good taste? I don't know. Is it worthy of condemnation? I don't think so. It's a bit loopy, but a Holocasut survivor dancing with his grandchildren at Auschwitz, to my mind, is overall more positive than negative.

I don't know how much of a say Germans have in Auschwitz but I understand that under our law "art" enjoys much greater protection as freedom of expression as simple free speech.

So I vote for it being great art, truly and sincerely great art, and just to come up with this wonderful idea confirms my view.

I'd just like to offer that his grand-daughters are super cute. Under the right circumstances, I would love to add another 10 new members to their grandfather's family with either one of them ;)

Do I see anything wrong with it?

I keep thinking of the late Ofra Haza's song Chai.

The Jewish celebration of life is the answer to the Holocaust. All those millions murdered would smile that the Jewish people are still here.

This then is their answer to those who slaughtered them and no one can take it from the survivors and their descendants.

No one.

Baruch Hashem!

I think it's great! I bet the old feller went back home feeling a whole lot better, and that's what really matters.

Cheers, Gavin.

I loved the videos. There are 3 in the series. The 3rd one is an interview with her father.
