Auschwitz memorial and museum has issued a statement on Twitter asking visitors to stop playfully posing on train tracks.
(Photo: Twitter)The Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial & Museum, the former German Nazi concentration and extermination camp, has issued a request on Twitter asking visitors to the Oświęcim, Poland cultural site to refrain from playfully posing on its train tracks.
The tracks were used to transport prisoners to the concentration camp, where the Nazis killed 1.1 million people and, according to the Auschwitz Museum, should not be used as a “balance beam” for a social media post.
See our @instagram account to see how images can commemorate victims & teach difficult and emotional history of #Auschwitz,” the museum said in a follow-up tweet.
