A family in New York City was seen wearing Nazi-themed costumes on Halloween, with the father dressed as a Nazi officer and a young child as a concentration camp victim, Gothamist reported on Saturday.

“I’m still disturbed from seeing this one last night: a family dressed up as a Nazi soldier, his Aryan race wife, and baby in a concentration camp uniform,” Marla S. told the local blog of the family, whom she photographed in Times Square at around 11:30 p.m. on Friday night. “Not sure if you have a list for the most f’ed up costumes, but I think this takes the prize… It’s such a messed up costume (for a family no less) that I needed to share.”

The photo shows the family standing in the subway at 42 Street and Broadway. The father is seen looking towards the camera donning full Nazi insignia complete with a red armband marked with a swastika. He also sports an Adolf Hitler lookalike mustache. The baby, asleep in a stroller as his mother leans beside him, is wearing the blue-stripped shirt and pants of the concentration camps together with a matching hat.

Gothamist called the family’s outfits “truly disturbing,” especially considering the baby’s costume.

“So dressing up as Hitler/a Nazi is questionable at best; having your family coordinate Nazi-themed outfits seems like a pretty bad idea. But doing all that AND dressing up your baby as a concentration camp victim is… truly disturbing,” the blog said. “And not the spooky, fun kind of disturbing.”

      Don’t suppose you see the irony of cursing at a neo-Nazi in Hebrew using an Arabic word?

    How did this dude get the snot kicked out of him NYC?

  • Shirlee Rosenthal

    Halloween is supposed to be a scary/fun holiday for everyone. This family shows no respect for those who died and those who survived the Holocaust. This was a horrible chapter in our history. Shame on this family. Shirlee

    These are obviously ignorant people…to young to know enough about the Holocaust, the destruction, the torture and death, and what haunts survivors until the rest of their lives – often into the next generation. They need to attend some courses about history, and what they’d have lived through had they been in Europe then. ignorant liberals.

    • Ignorant liberals? Huh, what? I guarantee you, 100%, that these people are not liberal.

      • Teresa Todd

        Maybe not but you can bank on them being stupid, insensitive, and just plain cruel!

  • Don’t get all worked up. They are just mishaguyim.
    This is par for the course in New York.

    This disgusting display is illegal in Germany. How can we allow it to happen here?

    • Jay

      We allow it here because we’re _not_ totalitarian fascist nazis.

      • Israeli

        How can you insult modern Germany for being thoughtful and responsible?

  • Sick Sick Sick !
    We as Jews are a Loving people,we turn from insult and ignorance in hope that Hashem in all infinate compassion will forgive such people.
    Seeing this validates that there are no boundrys to mental illness and maybe this is a case in point.
    If 10 people dressed up in Burkas and paraded around carring plastic pigs, would this Last more than a minute, I think not !
    Beware for the future does repeat? G_d forbid, at my age I remember hearing from my family and take pause, to acess behavior like this. Is it isolated or a glimpse to what is lurking below the surface.

    low IQ cretin and most assuredly the wife is even dumber. poor kid. what a gene pool. a sewer dweller and an unflushed toilet. oh. wait. that’s where they live.

    • sara

      Why would you assume she’s dumber? Let’s not add misogyny to the other hate.

  • CGG

    They certainly got the attention they coveted. Someone should call child protective services. That poor child not only is being indoctrinated into an ugly view of people, but as well, he’s being schlepped around at night when he should be in bed. It’s too bad that anyone can make a baby.
