Nude paintings blocked in German school spark debate

An adult education centre in Berlin has hung a collection of nude paintings days after censoring them out of deference to Muslim immigrants in what critics Wednesday called an overzealous bid at cultural sensitivity.

The paintings’ exclusion from an exhibition Friday met with public outcry in a neighbourhood where tensions were already running high after demonstrations against a new refugee centre earlier this year.

“Human nakedness is something natural. Muslims need to get used to it if they want to live here. It’s part of the culture here,” said Andreas F., 62, a pensioner taking an English class at the adult education centre.
