LONDON: Launching an Auschwitz Facebook page might have seemed like a good way to reach out to a web-savvy younger generation to keep alive the memory of the most notorious Nazi death camp.But after gaining 2000 followers in two days, the Facebook page launched by the Auschwitz museum in Poland was taken down on Thursday without explanation.The Auschwitz museum is the official memorial to the camp in which more than 1 million people, mostly Jews, died.Friends of the Facebook page wrote on the online wall, most of them saying that they would ”never forget”.Earlier, an Auschwitz museum official, Pawel Sawicki, said the museum kept an eye on everything that was posted on the Facebook page. ”It is a moderated site,” he said. ”A group of administrators will delete everything that is not suitable and against the spirit of the place.”Of course, we can lock ourselves in the memorial, but the internet is used by other institutions,” he said.Guardian News & Media
