Pop singer Pink defends Berlin Holocaust memorial picture

Pop star stands by Instagram post of her children running at site memorialising those murdered in the Shoah

Pop singer Pink has defended a photograph she posted of her children running at Berlin’s Holocaust memorial.

The Jewish performer, whose real name is Alecia Beth Moore, shared photos on Instagram from her trip to the German capital.

One showed her two young children running among the large stone blocks that make up the vast memorial.

Following the picture being put on social media, she was criticised for being disrespectful, before hitting back, saying: “these two children are in actuality Jewish, as am I and the entirety of my mothers family.

“The very person who constructed this believed in children being children, and to me this is a celebration of life after death. Please keep your hatred and judgement to yourselves.”

Jewish actress Selma Blair commented on Pink’s Instagram post: “I love Berlin too. I love that what happened is not being forgotten. I love this celebration of life. I love you.”
