Jewish communities were in uproar this afternoon after a group of German investors announced plans to build a new theme park close to the site of the infamous Death Camp at Auschwitz, used to exterminate millions of Jews between 1940 and 1945.
The park, called The End Of The Line, will open next year, and a tour schedule hastily put together yesterday includes being shaken out of bed during the middle of the night and separated from the rest of the family to join hundreds of other 'customers' at your nearest railway station.
Travellers then endure a slow and uncomfortable train ride to the Polish town from inside Germany, followed by incarceration, starvation and humiliation, and then a visit to a gas chamber.
The tour is not cheap, and will cost in the region of 'all your possessions', and 'all your gold teeth'.
Return tickets are not available.
Reacting to criticism of the plan, the architect who developed the idea, Heinrich Speer, grandson of Adolf Hitler's own architect, Albert Speer, said:
"It's nothing to get upset about. It's only a bit of fun!"
