(London Telegraph) A Swedish artist has been accused of desecrating the bodies of Jewish Holocaust victims after it emerged he used ashes taken from the crematoria at Majdanek concentration camp to paint a picture.

Carl Michael von Hausswolff mixed the ashes from the infamous Nazi facility with water to compose a small painting of grey streaks. The work now hangs in a gallery in the Swedish city of Lund.

But Salomon Schulman, a leading voice in Sweden’s Jewish community who lost many relatives to the Holocaust, has condemned the painting as “revolting”.
