Jewish group dismayed over Fishbone and Chapmans' golf game involving Hitler's groin

Blackpool: The Board of Deputies of British Jews have denounced a fully functioning crazy golf course in which players hav to putt their ball into the groin of a plastic cast of Adolf Hitler, BBC News reports. The golf course is the work of Doug Fishbone, who invited various artists to design a different hole in the game. The Hitler hole is by the Chapman Brothers. Michael Samuels of the board claimed the work, on display at the Grundy Art Gallery had 'absolutely no artistic value whatsoever'. 

Other holes include Fishbone's own sculpture of a toppling Saddam Hussein, Gary Webb’s builder’s bum, Pete Fowler’s green monster, Brian Griffiths’s desert island and Jonathan Allen’s boarded up library. The gallery say the work ridicules Hitler. The Jewish Chronicle previewed the exhibition yesterday without raising any concerns.
