1. Regardless of its content
Jonathan ,   Berkeley California USA   (12.06.12)
Regardless of his parts content, he should be put on trial for stealing from a monument and defiling and stealing from the graves of others... And benefiting from it all through fame and fortune. One should seek righteousness through righteous means. The Swedish park commissioner seems to think that the end justify the means. The end never justifies the means but the means always justify the end. And just because you can doesn't mean that you should.
2. Jews
Ellen ,   Israel/NYC   (12.06.12)
Good thing it was a desecration of Jewish remains. We may protest and we may complain BUT unlike Muslims I can assure you that no flags will be burned, mobs won't destroy buildings and mo life will be taken.
3. Explains a lot
Gee ,   Zikron Yaakov   (12.06.12)
First Eurotrash only like dead Jews - now we find out why. They not only stole every physical item they own and their lives, now their remains. Eurotrash have no morals at all
4. I have an idea to shut down the trash
Gee ,   Zikron Yaakov   (12.06.12)
Let's start a rumor that they were actually Muslim remains instead. Not only would the government shut it down the so-called 'artist' would be in hiding for the rest of his miserable life.
5. Just sickening!

6. Uses of a Jew's body.
tzina ,   Jerusalem, Israel.   (12.06.12)
Our hair was used for pillow stuffing, our skin was used for lampshades, our bones crushed for soap and now... our ashed for paint. There seems to be no end to the uses the goyim find for a dead Jew.
7. The number of victims
Tomek ,   Poland   (12.06.12)
The current scholarship gives the figure of ~70000 as the number of people who perished at Majdanek. When I was a kid and first visited the camp, which is located a walking distance from my home, 360 000 was indeed the number given but it was based, as it later turned out, on some faulty Soviet estimates made just after the war. One of the memorials at the camp contains mountains of human ashes, so I wonder how many more "artists" will be tempted to make use of them.
8. Thios is horrible, Thisa "artist:"
Reuven   (12.06.12)
belongs in jail.
9. This peace of trash
Zoe ,   Los Angels   (12.06.12)
10. Sick
Maurice ,   Israel   (12.06.12)
If this isn't sick, disrespectful and twisted, then what is?
11. #2 Ellen: Well said! Now you know why I won't buy from Ikea!
Dee Bee ,   Israel   (12.06.12)
I know that here in Israel it is a franchise owned by Israelis but the stuff is made in Sweden by Jew hating Swedes! Next we'll have lampshades made by someone in Norway and I won't elaborate here the origin of the raw material. If you want to hate Jews and Israel then don't be like Roger Waters and take Jewish money and then vilify Jews and Israel.
12. We are in an era...
Walt K ,   Sherbrooke, Canada   (12.06.12)
Where many artists cross all the limits with the goal to reach world wide stardom. Like Faust, they sale their souls to Mephisto... I don't remember, but do that story have a happy ending ?
13. Gee
Walt K ,   Sherbrooke, Canada   (12.06.12)
Take a look at the history books... The Nazis stole everything from the jews, properties, goods, golden teeth, hairs, skins... etc. There is an European evil greedy spirit who is bringing them back to their stone age instincs. Maybe, the Islam will become the final punishment they deserve.l..
14. I wonder
Sane   (12.06.12)
How he would react if someone would dig up his grandmother for 'art'.
15. Sweden
Sane   (12.06.12)
Why am I not surprised which country the artist is from
16. Most swedes are necrophilians and...
Beary White ,   Norway   (12.06.12)
...fishy..and lack common sense. In many ways they have learned something from their islamic immigrants.
17. Gallery owner logic
mea   (12.07.12)
Sure come on in and give me my paycheck and you will be convinced--what an arse.
18. Sickening
Torvid Høiland ,   Bryne, Norway   (12.07.12)
This is absolutely sickening. The lowlife who painted these pieces of "art" should be prosecuted. I'm not a lawyer, but there MUST be some law he has broken, surely.... But let's not blame all Swedes or all Europeans or all non-Jews for this dastardly deed. That would be lowering ourselves down to the level of the anti-semites. Let's blame only the guilty parties. Did the owner(s) of the gallery know what the "artist" used as paint? Did the ones who visited the gallery know what the paintings were made of? Maybe the answers to these questions can be found in the article, but I found it too sickening to read it all.
19. this creature is no artist--he is a monster.
debra ,   usa   (12.07.12)
20. Destroy the painting!
Arik ,   Hadera   (12.07.12)
Noore complaints, and words, only action! It is the only thing those beasts understand.
21. Born in Sweden but -
Arn. ,   Sweden.   (12.07.12)
with a German name - Hausswolff - Housewolf - fitting indeed Arn.Sweden.
22. It's theft. It's grave robbing. Isn't it illegal?
Zvi   (12.07.12)
An appropriate disposition for the "painting" would be that it would be taken from the artist and burned, and the ashes returned to the victims' memorial at Majdenek. The ashes and skins of Jewish (and also non-Jewish) people are not paint for painting with, or leather for making lampshades with.
23. again sweden
mehrdad ,   germany   (12.07.12)
why i am not surprised? maybe because it's sweden. a country with no morality and on it's way to degeneration. they have no religion and practice a leftist atheistic form of ideology which also welcomes pedophilia. look at the high numbers of child abuse there. such a country without values and moral is the perfect place for such ugly "art"
24. Nr 23. Why I am not surprised -
Arn. ,   Sweden.   (12.07.12)
- that Germany has Exported this Houswolf to us in Sweden. Such people as You are the answer to that. Adler from Sweden.
25. @23
NilsG ,   Helsingborg, Sweden   (12.07.12)
... so more religious countries are less corrupt? Hint: not the case. As for pedophilia, you are flat out wrong. Apart from that I agree that the "art" in question is ugly and a descration.
26. Discusting 2 legged animal !!
Don Rosenberg ,   Palatine USA   (12.07.12)
He is just a bigoted whore trying to get fame and fortune on the ashes of my people. May he go to hell with his whole family.
27. To Tzina
m   (12.07.12)
Not to forget how Europe has become so rich--all the Jewish assets accumulated with Jewish sweat and blood during 2000 years. Now they can afford to support the Muslims who are swamping them and who don't produce anything except death.
28. @26
nilsg ,   helsingborg, sweden   (12.07.12)
Out of interest, why do you wish his FAMILY into Hell? They done you anything?
29. wrong
Martin ,   Norway   (12.08.12)
Sweden were a safehaven for norwegian refugees during the war. Bad taste is to be found in every corner of the world. Maybe you need some drugs? I use Teba!
30. It wasn't your family members Martin Bryder
Zev Isaacs ,   Tel Aviv   (12.09.12)
It wasn't your family members Martin Bryder, and you making money off of the dead - SHAME ON YOU! As I read this article, and was only half way down, I thought, maybe Mr. Martin Bryder, owner of the art gallery, had a good point. That it would bring attention to the suffering. I could see his point. But then I saw whose ashes they were. My grandparents, great grandparents, 5 of my uncles and aunts were from Czechoslavakia - along with my father who couldn't deal with the guilt of his parents and siblings who were murdered and he survived, so when I was 2 and half, he took his own life because of this. All of sudden, after reading "Czechoslavakia" it because very personal to me. So Mr. Bryder, how would you feel it was the ashes of your grandparents, uncles and aunts? Thought so. Shame on you.
