My view is simple. Would you attend a funeral in T-Shirt and shorts?? I would think not. Visitors are not permittedto take photographs inside the buildings because of the things which took place there and yet i saw people who, in my opinion, were visiting this 'Tourist Attraction' as they would Disneyland or Seaworld. The publication I mentioned which slates the food vendors outside asks when will we see a Bar Mitzva!! I have contacted the Controller at Auschwitz and gave her my opinion. I have no intention of being a killjoy however I feel that in this place dignity must be maintained. As I have said WW2 ni, its how people behave, not how they dress. If you feel that a dress code should be enforced thats fine, but you can take out 50% of the visitors for starters. I am all for giving respect but I prefer to judge someone in how they behave not how they dress. Some of the rudest and most arrogant people I have met wore suits, some of the kindest and empathetic people had birkenstocks, shorts and T-Shirts. I'm going to have to "agree to disagree" with you on this, WW2ni.
