Exhibition in Iran Will Mock the Holocaust

In what seems to be a disgusting annual tradition, The Washington Post reports that Iran will be holding its second annual “contest” featuring cartoons that mock the Holocaust:

In early May, organizers in Tehran will stage the Second International Holocaust Cartoon Contest. Given the horrors of the Holocaust — in which the Nazi regime systematically killed more than 6 million Jews, as well as millions of Roma, homosexuals, political dissidents and other undesirables  — and current fears about a rise in global anti-Semitism, an event with that name ought to raise myriad red flags.

An exhibition will feature some of the 839 pieces of “artwork” submitted as part of the contest by artists from more than 50 countries, reports Iran’s semiofficial Fars News Agency.
