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 Sad

well captured
