    EasyJet Apologies for 'Sexy' Holocaust Photoshoot

    EASYJET have been forced into an embarrassing apology after printing a Holocaust gaffe in their in-flight magazine.


    The budget airline published racy photographs of models posing in the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin – without permission from the memorial’s owners.

    The saucy shoot sees models in sultry poses leaning against sculptures erected as a memorial to the genocidal massacre of the Jews in the Second World War.

    An Easyjet spokesperson said: “EasyJet profusely apologises to anyone who may be offended by the inappropriate fashion photo shoot at the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin featured in this month’s issue of the in-flight magazine.

    Labour MP Denis MacShane, who heads the European Institute for the Study of Contemporary Anti-Semitism, said: “This is further evidence of the banalisation of anti-Semitism and the trivialisation of the genocidal massacre of the Jews in the Second World War.”

    The model and her black potato bag are unaesthetic while the memorial itself actually stands out positively. The rows of slabs are a good way to represent any people, but the feeling of dark depth felt when walking among them is more reminiscent of the German people than any foreign one. I would not mind keeping it and putting the "Ort der Erinnerung" below it to better use.

    Holocaust Denkmal As Backdrop for Fashion

    Here is an article about that:

    Budget European airline EasyJet has apologized for publishing fashion photographs in its in-flight magazine that were taken at, of all places, a Holocaust Memorial in Berlin.

    The photos were discovered by the New Statesmen, a British magazine, on Friday. After the magazine brought them to the airline's attention, EasyJet withdrew all copies of the magazine. The airline also appears to have pulled them from the in-flight magazine's website, although you can see one of the photos archived here.

    The two offending photos appeared in the November issue of the airline's in-flight magazine as part of a feature marking the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. The photos featured models posing at what is known as the "Field of Stelae," which opened in 2005 and was designed by American architect Peter Eisenman.

    A spokesman for the airline said in a statement published by the Telegraph:

    EasyJet profusely apologises to anyone who may be offended by the inappropriate fashion photo shoot at the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin featured in this month's issue of the in-flight magazine. The magazine is produced by INK - an external publishing house, and easyJet were not aware of the images until they appeared in print.
    According to the BBC, INK did not seek permission from the Foundation for the Memorial of the Murdered Jews of Europe to take the photographs.


    The article is from the Huffington Post:

    Who are the owners? This piece of degenerate art has very probably been funded with taxpayer's money; besides it stands on the grounds of the Reich's Chancellery, so what ?
