Another from Auschwitz, Zyklon-B pellets
A sobering image. If only we could say the world had learned from the atrocities that took place in these camps. Well done Alan for capturing this place with such care.
I believe the company that made this still exists and a few years ago agreed to make financial reparations, if such a thing can possibly happen. It's chilling also to note that, until fairly recently, British farmers and gamekeepers could buy a legal equivalent over the counter for gassing pests. It also came in a can and was called Cymag. I never understood how anyone could stomach gassing a warren of rabbits with it, let alone knowing what happened in the camps.
A sobering shot. Does that can say Giftgas? Maybe in German it means something else but it is a hideous irony if it doesn't.

Giftgas means `Poison Gas' - as you say quite ironic to the English speaking world....have been to Auschwitz, it's a place that tests your emotions to the full. It was the displays of hair and spectacles that did it for me
Thanks for the comments everyone. Im glad to see people have strong veiws on the subject too!
