Auschwitz Museum Urges Visitors to Not Be Disrespectful by Taking Selfies on the Train Tracks

Damien Demolder writing for Digital Photography Review:

The Auschwitz Museum has asked visitors to be more respectful after an upsurge of pictures posted on social media showing people posing on the train tracks that lead to the main gate. The Museum is concerned that the tracks, which brought over a million people to their death in the camp during WWII, are being used as a photo opportunity with some visitors losing sight of what they represent.

It’s sad this has to be said.
