Mother Causes Fury Dressing Daughter as Hitler

Danish-Norwegian artist Nina Maria Kleivan made a series of tiny uniforms of famous tyrants throughout history, which she then photographed her year-old daughter in. Her daugher is shown above dressed as Adolf Hitler and Idi Amin. She intended to show that life begins the same for everyone as we all have the possibility for evil within us, saying “Even my daughter could end up ruling Denmark with an iron fist. The possibility is still there. You never know.” (Side note: the phrase “ruling Denmark with an iron fist” ranks as one of the most absurd-sounding phrases I have ever read, although I kind of see her point.)

Bennie Farber, of the Canadian Jewish Congress, questioned the display, saying, “Surely there’s a better way to explore evil than to throw a swastika on a baby.”
