Feedback about Holocaust humor from Jews 40+

As some of you may know, I am in the midst of writing an article about a webcomic called “Hipster Hitler.” The premise is that Hitler is portrayed as a modern day Hipster. I’m curious if the Jewish community thinks this comic is funny. More generally, I’m also curious what folks think is on/off limits in regards to Holocaust humor.

Since some of the funnier things about Hipter Hitler is their t-shirts, which Hitler wears hipsterly in each comic, I’m going to provide some examples below:

 

So far I’ve received a lot of great comments from people mostly in their 20s. For readers who may know Jews that are 40+ who’d be interested in responding (or who are Jews/40+!), I would love your feedback on this. Similarly, I’d also love feedback from Jews 70+. However, if this comic is too offensive to them, I’d understand not showing it. But if it’s not, I’d love their feedback as well. Generally, I’d love their thoughts on Holocaust humor, with or without having seen this comic.

To spice it up, here are some other examples of Holocaust humor:

Springtime for Hitler. (From theater version.) The premise is that producers want to short sell a musical, so they come up with most offensive musical of all times: Springtime for Hitler. This is a Mel Brooks classic and is often referred to in regards to Holocaust humor. 

This is rated one of the best “kitlers” from a website called, “Cats That Look like Hitler.com”

Thoughts?
