Maurizio Cattelan’s Statue Of Praying Hitler In Ex-Warsaw Ghetto Sparks Emotion.

I have to say history always sparks controversy and discussion especially Adolf Hitler. Mixed reactions to Maurizio Cattlelan’s work entitled “HIM”. The organizers say the broader point of the piece is to make people reflect on the nature of evil, but because the installation is in a former Warsaw ghetto where Hitler’s regime killed so many Jews people want it removed. The work can only be viewed through a small hole on Pronza Street in Warsaw, Poland and you can only see the back of the figure which looks like a small child praying. I for one am for this display since it opens a discussion that I think the world needs to have because history has repeated itself too many times to let this happen again. The evils of our past will always haunt us forever unless we find the courage to face it.
