Peter Schumann's and Bread and Puppet's trivialization of the Holocaust

There is some update about this affair taking place in neighbouring Vermont, about which I blogged here.

Ian Thal who was somewhat involved in that kerfuffle reports:

The story of Peter Schumann's and Bread and Puppet's trivialization of the Holocaust continues.

The New England Journal of Aesthetic Research blog ran a series earlier this month analyzing the debacle, and featured interviews both with Schumann and myself.

I should also point out that the statement in Seven Days that Schumann's family had fled from Nazi Germany when he was ten years old, appears to be in error. Schumann tends to be vague about his childhood, but the few statements he has made indicated that his family was fleeing from Allied bombing of Nazi Germany and an invading Soviet Army. I pointed out that error in a letter to the editor

Why I'm not genuinely surprised by these new revelations is anybody's guess..
