    How interesting that the BBC journalist informs us....

    "To the foreign tourists they are something of an attraction. German, Polish and Japanese visitors film the scene on their mobile phones as the Israelis parade alongside the railway tracks on which the Nazis brought more than a million Jews to their deaths“

    Since when did Poles become foreign tourists in their own country?

    And then the reporter adds..........

    "There are moments when the Israelis look like tourists themselves with their cameras and their tour guides - but their government sends them here with a purpose. It believes that deepening their knowledge of the Holocaust will deepen their commitment to defending the country."

    Really, are they any less tourists than the many Poles that visit Auschwitz to commemorate the tens of thousands of Polish victims also imprisoned and murdered at Auschwitz?

    I think not.

    "Sloppy reporting again by the BBC"

    I agree - it is not entirely accurate, yet it makes for an interesting article if only to see how the Israelis view the locale and its continued remembrance.
