Pictorial Representation of the Holocaust

auschwitz

The image that I chose to use for the pictorial representation of the Holocaust is a picture of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration Camp. This camp is one of the most notable symbols of the Holocaust because during the camps operation it was responsible for the death of over 1 million people. The image in particular that I chose is of the camp in modern day.  Having the picture be in modern day was a conscious choice shows that the horrors that once took place at this location are now over. Society has moved past such an awful moment in history. Yet the building still stands as a symbol of what was and as a reminder to what can happen under the worst circumstances.
