Three years ago, easyJet had to pull 300,000 copies of its in-flight magazine, which contained an eight-page article called, "A Quick Guide to the Chic Side of Berlin." In it, models posed between the pillars of the city's Holocaust Memorial, with text reading: "Berlin may not be a picture-perfect jewel … but it's a treasure trove for the culture vulture ... no visit would be complete without exploring the testaments to the city's turbulent past, such as ... the Jewish Museum and the Holocaust memorial."
EasyJet apologized, and at the time, Uwe Neumärer, a spokesman for the Foundation for the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, told the Guardian, "We only give permission to projects that have a connection to the memorial, the Holocaust or some aspect of commemoration." (We're still not sure how this happened since the Memorial has around-the-clock security.) Anyway, Pelayo Diaz of KateLovesMe.net — apparently not a regular reader of easyJet Traveller — was so moved by the "concrete blocks trying to reach the sky" that he posted photos of himself wearing a Davidelfin biker coat, Céline bag, Balenciaga shoes, and an American Apparel hoodie. The latter, of course, always pairs so well with ignorance.
