Artist Alexsandro Palombo has launched a series of drawings depicting The Simpsons as Jews in death camp Auschwitz to mark the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the concentration camp.
The project is entitled “Never Again.” Palombo says it is “an invitation to reflection, an artwork to raise awareness, an indictment against intolerance, a punch to inhumanity.”
He continued, “The Holocaust is something unique and unrepeatable for its atrocities. Auschwitz-Birkenau is the symbol of this inhumane delirium, the industry of death.”
“It is only through memory that we are able to fight racism, anti-Semitism, homophobia and all forms of intolerance that threaten the society, the freedom and the respect for all diversity,” he added.
Palombo also drew a photo of a “Simpsons Anne Frank” who is also seen standing inside one of Auschwitz/Birkenau’s gas chambers holding a sign up that reads “Never Again.”
