Jewish community groups condemned the involvement of young children in role-play depictions of the 1943 destruction of the southern Polish city’s ghetto saying they should have no place in the re-creation of the “mass murder” of thousands of people.
“Re-enacting battles or the march of armies is one thing but it is completely different re-enacting mass murder,” said Jaroslaw Szczepanksi, president of the Polish branch of B’nai B’rith, a Jewish international humanitarian society.
