Bavaria to leave medieval anti-Jewish sculptures on churches

in DLIKE4 months ago


Authorities, churches and Jewish communities in Germany's southern state of Bavaria have agreed that anti-Semitic statues and carvings dating back to the Middle Ages shouldn't be removed from churches, an official said Tuesday.

The Bavarian government's point man against anti-Semitism, Ludwig Spaenle, said that relics such as the "Judensau," or "Jew pig," sculptures that still adorn some churches should be explained "visibly and easily recognizably" where they stand, the news agency DPA reported.
