Name: Ivan Art Email: Message: Hello Mrs. Sharav, my name is Ivan Art and I am a satirical cartoonist living in Switzerland. I recently posted a very controversial image on my FB page and Instagram and have been getting a lot of hate responses saying I am offending those who suffered under the nazi regime by using the swastika. I am usually a little more subtle with my messages but I felt impelled to speak out since things in Europe are taking on similarities to the totalitarian propaganda you have lived. It’s not my intention to offend those who suffered but to make people think and create dialogue. If you think my post is disrespectful I will take it down immediately. With much respect for what you do and represent and what you have lived, I humbly ask for your opinion. Sincerely in faith, Ivan Art Here is a link to my post: https://www.facebook.com/photo?fbid=10158875114933074&set=a.10150721742573074
