Where’s Auschwitz? It may soon no longer be in Poland, at least according to the Internet: Bogdan Zdrojewski, Poland’s culture minister, has asked the directors of the Auschwitz-Burkenau museum—as well as their counterparts at the Majdanek and Stutthof concentration camps—to drop the .pl suffix from the museum’s Website.
“I’ve asked them to be consistent in using the appropriate German names of the camps and this applies also to the Internet,” Zdrojewski said. “At the moment the .pl is misleading and might make people associate the camps with Poland.” Luckily, we now have the Internet to help us correct such faulty notions as a history of murderous Polish anti-Semitism.
