Two Jews Lost in a Holocaust Museum

Alexander Nazaryan of the Daily News gets a first-hand experience of the dark, angry humor of Shalom Auslander (who visits 3/1):

"We were somewhere near the Warsaw Ghetto when Shalom Auslander’s anger started to kick in. He was angry because he had wanted to see pictures of female Israeli soldiers, but there were none on display that day at the Museum of Jewish Heritage in lower Manhattan. He was angry because he had not been able to find cigarettes in Battery Park City before coming to meet me there on a cold Wednesday afternoon. He was angry because I kept waving my voice recorder in his face. I pointed out the dangers of misquotation. His small eyes glowed." More.
