Cue the studmen talking about how her knees are too sharp and how they hate tattoos on women.

And now in the "Most Tasteless Pageant" category, we have...

Naming it a beauty pageant may have been a poor choice of words. These women deserve to tell their story, a story to which some people are still (forcefully at times) ignorant. However if some of these women want to participate more power to them.
 
2012-07-02 01:12:12 AM  
dude! they should get surviving nazi officers to be on the judges panel.

how do you say "flogging a dead horse" in hebrew?

in other news, the Palestinians just held a 'Miss Gaza Survivor' pageant. But sadly the IDF showed up and shot to death all the entrants.

Give it a few more years, someone will try to do yet another redux of some 70's Shoah guilt exploitation featuring striped prisoner gear.

Forgetting the Sudan, Rwandan, Cambodia, Armenian Genocide, Bosnia, and other events in history I forgot about which might have one headliner film for each event and have been forgotten about.

/To those that survived it, I have the greatest respect for you.

It was good until the talent contest, when one Holocaust lady showed her skills with ovens.

Did they use their tattoos as their contestant numbers?

This would have been a much better idea if they'd suspended the "too soon" rule.

No need to persecute the studmen, they are in denial.

"Why use a beauty contest to show that these people survived and that they're brave?" Lili Haber, who also heads an organization that provides assistance to Holocaust survivors, asked AP.

Because they're more than just objects for you to glorify yourself by pitying, they're people. And people, especially women, like to be fussed over by professional fuss-overers and told they're pretty every now and then.
 
2012-07-02 02:01:51 AM  
The contest itself doesn't bother me too much. What does bother me is that they apparently told at least 286 Holocaust survivors that they weren't pretty enough to be allowed to share their stories with an audience.

Should have done a better job putting on the sunscreen when you were in those forced labor camps, ladies!

"It sounds totally macabre to me," Colette Avital, chairwoman of Israel's leading Holocaust survivor's umbrella group, said according to the Associated Press. "I'm in favor of enriching lives, but a one-time pageant masquerading (survivors) with beautiful clothes is not what is going to make their lives more meaningful."

Who was born in 1950, so frankly, can EABOD about telling holocaust survivors what they can or can't do.

Here's one I wish had survived. I read her book in the 70's when I was at the age she wrote it, and it still tears me up:

She'd only be 83 now. But she died as a teenager in a Nazi death camp.

What a waste.

Such a waste of my cum
 
2012-07-02 04:14:43 AM  
At this age, with their wrinkly skin, I wonder how hard it'd be to get their numbers.
 
2012-07-02 04:30:05 AM  
shouldn't the irony tag have been used here because der spiegel is reporting it?

The producers of Toddlers & Tiaras are thrilled that the heat's not on them...Happy now,Haifa?

Exactly! The pageant is a false front to lure them in. The Nazi Hunters set this up!

A bunch of broads too ugly for the Nazis to rape to death makes for a horrible beauty pageant.

All that came to my mind was the word chutzpah. And to top it off, they had fun. What a wonderful idea.

// They got the world to notice for 30 seconds. That's all they could have hoped for.

if they're not taking the Holocaust seriously anymore, does that mean we can stop too?

Next story will have one of the contestants will be disqualified for having a fake Holocaust tattoo. They realized the truth when her story consisted of the hardship of running out of belgium waffles and german chocolate while living in Switzerland.

Hope they invited guest judges like this fine woman.

Agreed. It's a shame that she couldn't see it coming.

You do realize that the population in Gaza is growing, so to compare it to the holocaust show either profound ignorance or dishonesty.

Oh you're right. So the fact the the Israelis treat the Gazans just like the Nazis treated the Jews is ok, because Gazans can keep popping out more kids than than the number of people that the IDF kills. Makes sense!

The Israelis have starting gassing Gazans? When did that start?

People that whine about Israelis treating people like the Nazis treated them are truly ignorant. First of all, they are NOT doing that, not even close. Second, do you expect Israelis to be super nice to people and allow them to do as they please because of what the Jews suffered? That is nonsense.

Strangely enough, Israel is more concerned about people treating them badly. Go figure. These people that you want to Israelis to play nice with have a history of killing Israelis and have threatened to kill more.

I call it "Holocaust Non-Denial Denial." They make up lies about what the Israelis did, because they deeply believe the Holocaust survivors made up the Holocaust, and it's not fair that the Jews get to lie about the Holocaust but they don't get to lie about Israel.

/they get really lulzy when they flip out over the fact that reality itself doesn't bend to their will like it seems to do for Israel
//objective reality becomes a Zionist conspiracy
