Rammstein revealed a new video teaser which features the band’s members wearing striped prison uniforms with nooses around their necks.
According to NME, government officials and Jewish leaders have opposed the visual appearance of the teaser.
The source adds that one of the Jewish leaders, former president of the Central Council of Jews in Germany, Charlotte Knobloch, told Bild:
“With this video, the band has crossed a line. The instrumentalization and trivialization of the Holocaust, as shown in the images, is irresponsible.”
Felix Klein, the German government’s commissioner for anti-semitism, stated:
“I think it is tasteless exploitation of artistic freedom.”
