‘Ice Cream Stand’ Sets up Shop Outside Auschwitz Death-Gate (infuriates officials)


To set up an ‘ice cream stand’ outside of the Auschwitz Death Gate is the epitome of tacky and infuriating. It is beyond unthinkable. The lack of common sense and decency is unbelievable.

  • An ice-cream stand has set up shop outside the “Death Gate” at the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp.
  • An Auschwitz Museum spokesperson said it showed “a lack of respect for a special historical place.”
  • Hitler’s Nazis murdered 1.1 million people at the Auschwitz camp complex from 1940 to 1945.

Officials from the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp that Hitler’s Nazis built in 1940 in occupied Poland have slammed an ice-cream stand for setting up shop outside the iconic “Death Gate.”

Bartosz Bartyzel, a spokesperson for the Auschwitz Museum, told the Polish newspaper Gazeta Krakowska in a statement that it was “an example of not only aesthetic tastelessness but also a lack of respect for a special historical place located nearby,” Sky News reported.

Despite the outrage at the ice-cream stand’s location — a few hundred feet from the entrance to the Nazi death camp — it’s parked on public land just outside of the camp, so there is nothing the organization can do about it.
