Woman’s seductive pose at Auschwitz prompts outrage, response from museum demanding respect

But there is no respect for my people. There is no respect for Israel. Anti-Semitism is rampant around the globe and always will be UNTIL our Lord Yeshua comes back to rule and reign from Jerusalem!!



An anonymous woman’s seductive pose for a photo on the train tracks that once carried over a million people to their deaths at Auschwitz went viral on Twitter, eliciting a response from The Auschwitz Memorial reminding visitors to be respectful.

Maria Murphy, a producer at GB News, captured and shared the image of the flannel-clad woman grinning as she sat on the tracks, leaning back with one hand holding her hair out of her face while an unnamed man crouched beside her to snap a photo.

Murphy served up a critical take with her caption: “Today I had one of the most harrowing experiences of my life,” she wrote. “Regrettably it didn’t seem everyone there found it quite so poignant.”

The Auschwitz Memorial chimed in among a slew of users calling out the inappropriate gesture on the thread, reminding visitors to be respectful in light of the site’s tragic history. 

“Pictures can hold immense emotional & documentation value for visitors. Images help us remember,” the account wrote in part.

“When coming to @AuschwitzMuseum, visitors should bear in mind that they enter the authentic site of the former camp where over 1 million people were murdered. Respect their memory,” it continued.

The memorial, which strives to educate current and future generations about the horrors committed at the former concentration and extermination camp situated in then-Germany occupied Poland during the Second World War, commonly shares images and comments dedicated to conserving the memory of those lost to Nazi genocide.

Users, weighing in on the memorial’s response, voiced their disbelief that “grown adults” have to be admonished for their misconduct at such a somber site.

“I can’t believe you have to tell grown adults to behave and be respectful. This should be common sense,” one said.
“This picture is beyond disrespectful,” another added in part.
Murphy, responding to a comment from GB News conservative commentator Darren Grimes on her own post, blasted the anonymous couple’s “total detachment from reality” and, in a separate response to another user, explained that the tour had been going for one to two hours when the photo was taken, so the visitors could not claim “ignorance.”

She also explained that the museum consistently urged visitors to remain “mindful and respectful” throughout the tour.

“You would think this sort of thing wouldn’t need to be specified as a no-go for that criteria,” she added.

Murphy’s post garnered over 30.5 million views as of Wednesday and sparked intense discussion about the appropriateness of selfie-snapping in such spaces, including a slew of remarks that slammed the move as “disgusting” and “offensive.”

I have no words. My tears are my words.

  1. That is so disrespectful and hurtful. However, this disrespect is everywhere! Yesterday on 5 o’clock news a reporter from Toronto did live interviews from teens waiting for a Toronto hockey game. On live TV all three, including a young girl, had the most vile words coming out of their mouths. Our yard backs on a park with children’s playground and the language I hear is disgusting. I saw a father break two branches off a newly planted tree to use as twigs for a snowman. We are living in 2 Tim 3:1-4! Every moral and ethical value , let alone biblical, we have held so dear is being mocked, perverted and changed. I could never understand Rev 16: 8-11, men blaspheming God even in midst of horrific wrath. Now I see that mentality everywhere. I am so sorry Geri! Hanging on day by day!!!

    1. I agree. There is no respect for anything anymore. Not self, not morals, not life, nothing! I can’t wait to go home and get out of this cesspool.
