Keeping the Real Preserved
In the Auschwitz article, the problem that they are having with this place as a museum is the fact that they are trying to preserve everything thats real, without making it too modern. They want people to come and be able to see and feel the real place and cemetery that it was and still is. They don’t want to replace the artifacts and buildings that they have with something that looks real and is actually fake, and not from that time. Over a million people visit this place each year. They don’t want to make it look pretty, but they want to make it for the people, and they want to make it have an affect on the people. I personally don’t want them to change much. If I were to visit Auschwitz, I would want it to look as close to it did during the holocaust as it does now. I wouldn’t want them putting in things that look authentic, that actually aren’t. Which is why I chose this fake leaf to symbolize something that looks real, but isn’t.
