Israel’s Miss Holocaust Survivor Beauty Pageant: http://nyr.kr/LfHXC6

The pageant was worse than tasteless in the eyes of many. (“Ghastly” and “macabre” were among the adjectives used to describe it.) But the next morning, I got an e-mail from a friend of mine in the movie business. “I thought, at first, this had to be a satire,” he wrote. “You cull a minion’s worth of good-looking old Jewish ladies from a big pool of less desirable specimens; you put them on show wearing blue numbers; and the prize for the best story of their ordeal is a weekend at a fancy hotel? It’s like ‘Springtime for Hitler.’”
