Young folks get inked with grandparents’ Holocaust numbers in tribute10/1/2012
Forget hearts, stars and "I love Mom" -- some Israeli young adults are taking the surprising step of tattooing their grandparents' Holocaust numbers onto their own arms. While some might try to forget their painful family pasts, these young people are indelibly inking it onto their bodies. "I decided to do it to remind my generation," one 21-year-old woman says. "I want to tell them my grandfather's story and the Holocaust story." Critics say the bold move trivializes history, while some are branding it as an in-your-face way of bridging the past with the present. Either way, the shocking tats pack a seriously meaningful punch. [Source]
