We are sitting in a suite at the Lanesborough hotel. Galliano’s long-term boyfriend, the celebrity stylist Alexis Roche, has left us alone to talk, although he smiles anxiously as he closes the door. Galliano, 55, hasn’t given an interview to a newspaper in years, but today he’s ready.
The former Dior designer has a new job, and a new approach to life, at Maison Margiela, where he has been creative director for 18 months.
...He has also made efforts to atone for his misdeeds with the Jewish community, although the French rabbis he first approached shunned him. Through the Anti-Defamation League in New York and Jonathan Newhouse, the CEO of Condé Nast, the publisher of Vogue, Galliano was introduced to the London-based Rabbi Barry Marcus, who has mentored and educated him (and whom Galliano invited to his debut Margiela show).
Some people will never forgive the things he said (“I love Hitler”); others are eager to give him a second chance.Source
Both Jews and Muslims seems to be big on these forgiveness rituals in which lowly goyim/kuffar prostrate themselves at their feet and beg the benediction of their masters. The superiority of Jews/Muslims is affirmed while the infidels acknowledge their own unworthiness and moral taint. Holocaust commemoration is really just a grand-scale implementation of the basic idea; and the Muslims are trying to get the same thing going with nonsense about the Crusades and Srebrenica.
