Holocaust garb causes outrage in Israel faith row

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Ultra-Orthodox Jewish demonstrators caused outrage on Sunday by dressing children as Holocaust victims to protest against what they see as persecution of devout Jews seeking gender separation in Israel.

A boy wearing a cloth cap and the sidecurls of an Orthodox Jew was the centerpiece of the Jerusalem protest late on Saturday.

His hands were raised in surrender and a yellow Star of David inscribed with “Jude,” Jew, in German, was sewn on his jacket. The image mimicked a memorable photo of a terrified Jewish boy during a roundup in the Nazi-occupied Warsaw Ghetto in World War Two.

“Nazis, Nazis,” some of the protesters shouted at police. . . .

Israel is in the grip of an emotional debate over attempts by Jewish zealots to impose and enforce gender separation in ultra-Orthodox neighborhoods and other public places. . . .
