As a child of Holocaust survivors I wish to protest the front page picture of a Jewish woman with part of her nipple exposed and a tattooed star of David on her shoulder , page 1 of Nov 27, 2013.

While the topic is of great importance and testing for a cancer gene sets up a dilemma in Israel, in Judaism we have a concept of modesty which includes not showing pictures of women exposing their breasts. In addition, I am horrified by the tattoo which is reminiscent of the wearing of a Jewish star imposed by the Nazis. The picture takes up a large portion of the front page. It is the woman's personal right to have the tattoo of the Star of David, but for the purposes of this article, there was no reason to choose this particular picture since it is hurtful to Holocaust survivors and their children.
