The Echo award has been given to the rappers Kollegah and Farid Bang whose songs make pejorative reference to Jews and routinely refer to women as ‘the whores’.
A campaign is flaring up to have the award revoked.
Their song “0815” contains the line ‘My body is better defined than Auschwitz inmates’. (Mein Körper definierter als von Auschwitzinsassen)
The award was made on 12th April, International Holocaust Day of Remembrance in Israel.
