Celebrity Nazi Photos Banned

A photo exhibition featuring celebrities and actors such as 007 Roger Moore and French star Jean Paul Belmondo dressed in Nazi uniforms has been banned in Poland, Reuters reports.

Titled "The Nazis," the photo display became headline news last week when a famous Polish actor destroyed several portraits with a fake sword.

Shortly after the incident, Poland's culture minister Kazimierz Ujazdowski ordered its closure until its organizers explain the exhibit's significance.

"State institutions must not be used as locations of exhibitions which could be interpreted as a praise of Nazis," Ujazdowski said.
