Israeli students cheer Nazis at Holocaust Remembrance Day play
Several dozens of high school students watching a play portraying the gruelling hardships of life in Vilna’s Jewish Ghetto during World War II applauded and cheered the Nazis, during Holocaust Remembrance Day last week.
During the play “Ghetto,” which was performed on Wednesday at Tel Aviv’s Cameri Theater before audiences from four high schools, some students disrupted the solemn tale by shouting catcalls at the actors, and cheered a Nazi who shot dead a Jew. Others called out “hit him harder” and “way to go” during a scene where a kapo beat a Jew, Army Radio reported Monday.
At the play’s conclusion, actor Oded Leopold called from the stage for the audience to halt their applause, and sharply chastised the students’ behavior.
Apprenant cela, Nicolas Sarkozy a immédiatement téléphoné au Premier ministre israélien pour présenter les excuses de la France et condamner officiellement le détestable comportement des étudiants, euh, attends… Non, finalement, personne n’a téléphoné à personne.
