'Ravages of time' leave Auschwitz decaying - World news - Europe - msnbc.com
This is a different kind of "conservation" project. Not a place that is beautiful, or represents great accomplishments of a past civilization, but a nasty, horrific place that nevertheless needs to stay around. Must be a challenge to raise money for Auschwitz. It is actually sobering to remember that the other infamous camps do not exist any more; there should be one at least that remains for people to see, walk through, touch. It's real and as long as it is properly conserved the deniers can't wish it away.
