After I uploaded Dancing Auschwitz to Youtube, the reaction to the video clip was overwhelming. Initially Neo Nazis and White Supremacist groups from Hungary, The Netherlands, Russia and the United States responded with a wave of hate-mail. Many others also disapproved, believing it trivialised the victims’ suffering at the hands of the Nazis, as well as breaking a taboo of dancing at a sacred site. However, many more throughout the world sent messages of love and support.
But most surprising and touching were those who had been carrying the emotional weight of their family's past. Viewing the video clip allowed them to laugh, cry and ultimately experience a deep sense of healing.
