Polish police opened an investigation into the actions of two women who struck what observers said were provocative poses while standing next to headstones in a Jewish cemetery.
The investigation, which was opened this week, follows a complaint by the international commemoration group From the Depths to the Polish State Prosecutor regarding photos that surfaced online of the two women. They are suspected of violating a Polish law against offending religious sentiment at a place of worship or holy site.
One undated picture shows an open-mouthed, young woman wearing a black leather coat while pressing her chest and one of her thighs to an ornate Jewish headstone. The other, dated in 2012, shows another young woman standing on a headstone while wearing a very short mini skirt and a belt emblazoned with the word “Jesus.”
