‘Skin lamp’ ad­ver­tised

The Jewish Chronicle - - WORLD NEWS -

AN UNIDEN­TI­FIED in­di­vid­ual in Ro­ma­nia has ad­ver­tised a lamp­shade “made from the skin of a Holo­caust vic­tim”.

Ro­ma­nian news chan­nel An­tena 1 re­ported last week­end that the ob­ject was priced at $26,800.

The Cen­tre for Mon­i­tor­ing and Com­bat­ing An­ti­semitism in Ro­ma­nia, or MCA Ro­ma­nia, re­ported the mat­ter to the po­lice.

The direc­tor of MCA Ro­ma­nia, Max­imil­lian Marco Katz, told JTA: “We will let the au­thor­i­ties deal with it. The fact is that the ad is still out there so the seller was not both­ered by the TV re­port on this mat­ter. Even if this is a hoax, the seller should be brought to jus­tice for abus­ing the Holo­caust for per­sonal gain.”
