Now, since the election,we've been hearing
about a rise in anti-Semitism--
neo-Nazis gatheringin Washington,
swastika graffiti everywhere...
Uh, or at least I think thoseare supposed to be swastikas.
For more on this, we turnto senior Jewish correspondent,
Adam Lowitt, everybody.Adam Lowitt.
this is an interesting timefor Jews, okay?
We're nervous,we've got constant anxiety,
we're worried about the future,so... really nothing's changed.
-(laughter)-Uh... but with all the hate
that's been swirling around,it was almost refreshing
to see it donein such a creative fashion
this past weekend.Take a look.
A Russian TV show is
taking on heat online for a controversial performance show
similar to America's Dancing with the Stars
but it features ice skating.
Now, one of the couples raised brows
outside of Russia when they came out
dressed as Holocaust inmates.
The act was based on the award-winning
1997 Italian film Life Is Beautiful,
and earned the pair their highest score yet on the show.
Yeah. Uh, that isso messed up,
but maybe that's just'cause I'm Jewish,
or 'cause I live in New York,or I have a soul.
-I'm not sure.-(laughter)
I mean, I never thoughtI'd say this,
but where is Tonya Hardingwhen you need her?
(laughter and applause)
Because now we have to remembertwo groups of survivors,
and the people who sat throughthat performance.
Now, you might be saying,
oh, these guys didn't reallythink it through.
But trust me, they thoughtof everything.
Watch and listen to someof these moves.
(dogs barking)Running away from Nazi dogs.
Getting shotby Nazi machine guns.
And finally going full Hitler.
And I know seeing them do this
is pretty messed up,
but that actually is asanctioned ice skating move.
It's calledThe Schindler's Twist.
High degree of difficulty,'cause you have to do it
while ignoring the voicesin your head going "No!"
These guys have taken the mostserious event in history
and combined it with thesilliest art form in history.
That's like Cirque du Soleilpresents 9/11.
It's a good show.
And by the way, those icedancers got a perfect ten.
And you know why?
Because judges can't giveholocaust victims bad scores.
They've been through enough.
Now look, Russians, I don't wantto get in the way
of your creative process,but let's just have a rule.
You can still dancelike no one's watching,
but from now on,why don't you ice dance
like everyone is watching?
Because once this cliphit YouTube,
everyone freaked out.
I mean, not everyone.
The way things are going,Donald Trump will probably
ask them to performat his inauguration.
