Televised Christmas Carol in Romania Accused of Being Anti-Semitic

Overworld's picture

by Kathy Jones on  December 15, 2013 at 9:39 PM

Romania is in the eye of yet another controversy after a televised choir
of Christmas carol indirectly glorified the Holocaust and said Jews
should be burned in a chimney.

The song, shown on the country's new TVR3 channel on December 6, drew
strong condemnation from religious groups and the US embassy in
Bucharest. The government has also distanced itself from the
controversial broadcast.

The century-old carol, performed by a folk group in the northwestern
Cluj region, features lyrics that use the pejorative term "jidovi" for
Jews and includes a line that says Jews are good "only in the chimney,
only in smoke".

Foreign Minister Titus Corlatean vehemently objected to the song. "I
strongly condemn any form of anti-Semitism, even more when it happens to
be spread through a public media," he said.

The US embassy called the broadcast "an unacceptable display of
anti-Semitism that must be condemned in the strongest, most unequivocal
terms".

It urged all Romanians "to reject racism and to repudiate those that
would defend such acts as an acceptable expression of cultural
identity".

The Elie Wiesel Institute for Holocaust research in Romania expressed
"strong disapproval" of the Christmas carol, which it said carried "an
anti-Semitic message of rare gravity and vulgarity".
