An Instagram travel blogger is labeled as & # 39; callous and disrespectful & # 39; for posing with a rubber duck on the Auschwitz trail.
The Auschwitz Museum publicly criticized the blogger who got more than 1,000 followers by smiling the yellow toys for global sights such as Buckingham Palace and Mount Vesuvius.
On Wednesday, the Spanish-language account placed the image of the bath duck in front of the notorious traces with the gates of the concentration camp in the background.
An Instagram travel blogger has been criticized after sharing a photo of a bath duck in front of the gates of Auschwitz (left). The post has received a number of responses with the indication & # 39; error & # 39; (good)
The account, called @Atukapil, shares photos of the duck posing for famous landmarks around the world
It was immediately confronted with a barrage of abuse after it was shared by disturbed Auschwitz memorial staff.
It was quickly sued as & # 39; unpalatable & # 39; and & # 39; shameful & # 39; – the account with the name @Atukapil was asked to delete the message and apologize.
In their post on Twitter, the Auschwitz Museum said: “What if someone traveling with a rubber duck and using it as an artistic Instagram convention arrives at Auschwitz Museum?
# Is the bath duck for the Gate of Death disrespectful – even unintentionally? Or is it a side effect of the visual world that we must accept / ignore? & # 39;
The photos were recalled by the Auschwitz Museum on Twitter, who asked if they were acceptable
The post from the museum saw many people reply that the photo & # 39; absolutely disrespectful and disgusting & # 39; used to be
The travel blogger, with the slogan & # 39; life must be yellow & # 39 ;, seemed to understand the meaning of the location where he playfully posed the duck.
The real identity of the blogger behind the account is unknown.
In addition to the smiling toy, Apil wrote: & # 39; It was the largest destruction center in the history of Nazism, where an estimated 1,300,000 people were sent, 1,100,000 of whom died, the vast majority of whom were Jewish.
& # 39; Auschwitz II (Birkenau), extermination camp, where most of the more than one million victims of the camp died. There were women in this section.
& # 39; Trains full of people arrived daily and were immediately separated between & # 39; fit and unsuitable & # 39 ;. The fit had a life expectancy of months, while the unsuitable were sent directly to the gas chambers. & # 39;
The account has many photos of the rubber duck for monuments such as the Brandenburg Gate (photo)
The account has since deleted the offending photo and apologized and acknowledged their mistake
But in the post of the Auschwitz Museum, they wondered if the fact that the person clearly understood the meaning of the place makes the offensive image worse.
Shocked Twitter users destroyed the individual behind the photo and called them & # 39; extremely disrespectful & # 39; and & # 39; thirty & # 39 ;.
This is not the first time that museum employees are forced to report the inconsiderate behavior of visitors.
In March 2019, the museum tweeted warning people to prevent them from balancing & # 39; on the train tracks where more than 1 million people were killed.
The museum account wrote: & # 39; Do not forget that you are on the site where more than 1 million people died. Respect their memory.
& # 39; There are better places to learn to walk on a balance beam than the site that symbolizes the deportation of hundreds of thousands to their deaths. & # 39;
