Argentine Jewish leader criticizes anti-Semitic cartoon


The head of Argentina’s Jewish community criticized as anti-Semitic a cartoon that appeared in a national newspaper.

Guillermo Borger, president of AMIA, Argentina’s main Jewish community organization, called the cartoon, which appeared Thursday in the newspaper Pagina 12, a “provocation.”

“As a son of Holocaust survivors, I will fight against this type of shameful provocation until the final consequence,” Borger said.

The cartoon, by Gustavo Sala, depicts a DJ performing at a concentration camp and Hitler instructing inmates to “have fun because life is short.”

The National Institute Against Discrimination told JTA it had recieved several complaints about the cartoon and said it plans to send a letter to the newspaper asking for an apology.
