Dieter Graumann, president of the Central Council of Jews in Germany, condemned on Tuesday the use of Holocaust symbols by haredim (ultra-Orthodox Jews) at a protest Saturday night as "shocking," according to an AFP report citing an interview with the Koelner Stadt-Anzeiger daily.

"I was even ashamed that Jews of all people should do such a thing, giving a distorted image of the Holocaust," Graumann said, calling the incident "particularly disgraceful."
