washington - An American Congressman got a bang after he had filmed a former concentration camp Auschwitz in Poland. Deputy Clay Higgins provided the video commentary in a gas room, American media told Tuesday.
Higgins describes in the five-minute video how the Nazis transformed their victims into gas chambers. According to the Republican politician, such horrors show that the US army must be 'invincible'.
The State Museum Auschwitz-Birkenau, where the camp falls, can not be said about Higgins's action. 'Everyone is entitled to personal reflections,' wrote the organization on Twitter. 'But in a former gas room, sad silence should prevail. It is not a stage. '
The organization later shared a picture of the board outside the gas room. 'You are in a building where the SS killed thousands of people. Please keep silent: think of their suffering and respect for their memory, 'says the inscription.
Higgins has not yet responded to the commotion.
