In an email response to The Jerusalem Post on Wednesday, Knigge wrote, “Mr. Tenenbom’s description of the work carried out by the Buchenwald memorial is absurd and devoid of all reality. Mr. Tenenbom reproduces the conversations he held with me and the head of the memorial education department in distorted form. I never at any time said that Jews should have been settled in Uganda. Nor is the T-shirt from the Uganda Bar in Jerusalem a propaganda T-shirt,” Knigge wrote.
“The Uganda Bar is an establishment which presents artistic events and is very popular among young Israelis. I enjoyed going to that bar with my Israeli wife of many years, who is herself an artist. The bar is near her mother’s flat; they serve good humous there and play interesting music.” http://www.jpost.com/JewishWorld/JewishNews/Article.aspx?id=296833
