Wife of Putin Spokesperson Performs Holocaust-Themed Ice Skating Routine

Tatiana Navka, the wife of Vladimir Putin press secretary Dmitry Peskov, is under fire for performing a Holocaust-themed routine with Andrey Burkoskiy on a Russian ice skating TV competition.

The duo, dressed in striped uniforms with gold Stars, portrayed Jewish prisoners in concentration camps skating to 'Beautiful That Way' on the Russian reality series.

On her own social media account, Navka attempted to explain the choice of performance and claimed it was to call attention to the Holocaust.

"It was necessary viewing!," she said. "This is one of my favorite numbers! It is based on one of my favorite films 'Life is Beautiful' It's necessary to explain this film to my own children. PS our children should know and remember this strange time, and God grant that they will never experience it themselves."

"Oh those whacky Holocaust victims," reacted comedian Sarah Silverman (photosSarah Silverman photos). "Oh my god. Oh my god. Oh my god."

"This is incomprehensible," added sports analyst Al Berstein.
