THE IMAGE IN the magazine’s cover story, Twin Fates, written by Aharon Granot, profiles one of the last-surviving Mengele twins: Irene and Rene Guttmann. The magazine cover featured Rene, but not his sister; the story itself included images of Irene as a child only, while Rene was depicted through adulthood.
The pixellation sparked an uproar on social media and in the Israeli press, when Orthodox women’s activist and founder of Chochmat Nashim, Shoshanna Keats-Jaskoll, posted a screenshot of the story on Facebook.
“Dear Mishpacha magazine,” she wrote. “…There is nothing holy about this practice. You cannot see how far gone you are. You should be ashamed of yourselves.”
