This photo not only probes that people are cruel, it also demostrates that people are stupid as well.

There is nothing that can be said about this tableau. It speaks for itself. Naf said.

This exhibit is what?! Who put this up to say what?
There is a definite responsibility to remind people of the shit that happened in the past and to EDUCATE for why this shit happened, Being of German nationality and having grown up with parents who had to deal with the fact that when they were young, they ACTUALLY bought into that crap ( but are by the way yhe most basic, nicest, love-founded-on-love people you can ever meet, but still bought the crap that was offere to them) I just don't see the point of this.
Anyhow, this image is so bluntly horrific, more than the pictures you might find on the net. Because it just puts the horror into one room, staring at nothing, shoulder to shoulder. Brrrrrr.
Worse than that, the new kids will probably think that the black clothing looks cooler then the stripey one.

Well I personally don't think we see enough of this kind of thing.

Elliot,
For the right reasons you're so right! For my own frame of mind, this kind of simplification belongs into a wax museum for peple to go OHHH! NOW, LET'S EAT MORE FISH'N CHIPS.

That was my thinking behind the posting of this picture. The banalisation of one of the most horrific acts of violence and inhumanity ever perpetrated. The way in which is presented here, makes it look like a fashion parade for SS uniforms! This exhibit is in Massachussets, USA.

I have no idea what the artist who put this tableau together intended....It seems to be a satire. But to satirise what has been universally condemned is redundant.
Come, come gentlemen....You're not really horrified by this.

This exhibit is not in an art museum. Is in museum about World War II. I think that this presentation is profoundly crass and insensitive....And what a fuck do you mean I am not horrified?

I mean you are in a state of high dudgeon, not horror.
If it's an exhibit in a museum then it's naive.

My young daughter has an expression for these circumstances:"Whatever"

I agree with Limbolo, it is more silly than horrific. An insight into the minds of stupid people...
