Anne Frank, a German Jewish girl, hid for two years from the Nazi army during the occupation of the Netherlands in 1942.

Together with relatives and other people, when he was 12 years old, he

lived in a hiding place recording everything that happened in a personal diary.

In 1945, he died of typhus in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp, after passing through Auschwitz, two months before the liberation by the Allies.

In 2021, during the “La Academia” contest, of the Showmatch program, led by Marcelo Tinelli, also head of the Professional Football League, a participant,

Sofía Jiménez, performed “Yo no soy esa mujer”, by Paulina Rubio, which deals with a person does not want to stay at home.

The image of Ana Franck, a giant, was the background of the choreography

during the program that is broadcast by El Trece.

🔴Using Anne Frank as the background of a song by a woman who refuses to stay at home is taking the banalization of the Holocaust to an extreme expression.

It is an act of humiliation to the victims, to the survivors and to those who choose human dignity as a life option

The repudiation came quickly, mainly from the Ana Frank Center in Argentina, from where they assured that this scene “is to take

the trivialization of the Holocaust to an extreme expression

.

It is an act of humiliation for the victims, the survivors and those who choose human dignity as a life option ”.

“Anne Frank did not stay at home because she was a subjugated woman but

had to hide to escape the persecution of the Nazi machinery.

During his confinement, he had the most significant act of resistance, which was to write a diary ”.

The main museum that tells of her life is installed in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, in the same house where the girl struggled to survive.

There, the windows that today overlook the charming city, full of tusitas, landscapes and cultural activities, are plotted with an image that recreates what that city was like during the German invasion, with soldiers from the Third Reich looking attentively everywhere.

Those who produced this aberrant spectacle express their absolute inability to defend the dignity of the human, the dignity of women and their disconnection with the victims of any genocide.

"Those who produced this aberrant spectacle express their absolute inability to defend the dignity of the human

, the dignity of women and their disconnection with the victims of any genocide.", Continues the statement from La Casa de Ana Frank Argentina on its Twitter account .

“What is worrisome is the naturalization of horror for entertainment purposes and commercial speculation.

The Holocaust and no deaths can be used to entertain. "

In the same text, Tinelli and his entire team are invited "to visit the Anne Frank Museum, learn about its legacy, its impact on millions of young people in the country and understand how much damage they have caused."

For his part, the deputy of Together for Change Waldo Wolff also expressed his rejection on social networks.

Was it necessary to put the photo of Anne Frank in the background of a choreography in Showmatch?

Minimally, many of us expect an apology from the production and an awareness in his next program of who he was and his history.

Tinelli did not refer to the issue on his social networks, nor did they from the production of the program or the Jujuy model.

During the so-called Holocaust, about six million Jews were killed and the survivors were stripped of their homes, belongings and even separated from their families.

In the strictly warfare, the then Soviet Union, registered a drop of 29 million, between civilians and military, while in the Netherlands, 249 thousand and in Poland, 6.27 million.

Germany lost about six million of its own, between soldiers and citizens.
