"I am not that woman who does not leave home", with the face of anne frank

Sofía Jujuy came out to sing and dance on the Marcelo Tinelli program on Friday night and did a version of the song “I am not that woman”, by Paulina Rubio. The choreography could have been one of many that can be seen on a variety show, but it included a trivialization of the Holocaust that has aroused criticism.

On a screen appeared the faces of famous women. Not exactly with a certain pattern, since they were from Eva Perón to Gabriela Sabatini, passing through Mercedes Sosa, María Elena Walsh, Mother Teresa of Calcutta, Niní Marshall and Frida Kahlo.

While Sofía Jujuy chanted the phrase “I am not that woman, who does not leave the house”, the face in the background was that of Anna Frank. At the same time, Sofía Jujuy sang “that spoiled, spoiled or lost girl.” The song also includes that passage: “I am not that woman, that lost girl, the one who signs a paper and gives you her life.”

The young Dutch woman spent more than two years in hiding with her family in a house in Amsterdam during the Nazi occupation in World War II. On June 12, 1942, the day of his 13th birthday, he received a gift diary. It filled its pages for the next several years, until August 1944, when the Nazis stormed in and carried off the eight occupants of the hideout. Only Otto Frank, Anna’s father, survived. His wife and two daughters died in the Bergen-Belsen death camp. The posthumous publication of Daily made it one of the most famous texts of the 20th century and part of the central bibliography on the Holocaust.

The inclusion of Frida Kahlo, in relation to the same line of the song, also seems unfortunate. The Mexican artist suffered a terrible traffic accident in her teens and spent months bedridden at home, while doing rehabilitation and beginning to paint. In fact, he had mobility problems for the rest of his life. The fact that Eva Perón appears could refer to the story “That Woman” by Rodolfo Walsh, words that make up the title of the song.

Tinelli’s name became a trend on Twitter as a result of this episode, in which the genocide perpetrated by Nazism is trivialized. It is not the first time that it happens in Argentina. In 2017, Esteban Bullrich, then Mauricio Macri’s Minister of Education, signed an agreement at the Anne Frank House Museum in the Dutch capital and made a statement that caused a scandal: “She had dreams, she knew what she wanted, she wrote about what she wanted. I wanted to and those dreams were largely truncated by a leadership that was not able to unite and bring peace to a world that promoted intolerance. ”Nazism reduced to a political quarrel. Tinelli now considers her a girl who did not leave her house.
