Is Auschwitz The New Disney World?


Madonna has announced that when her “Sticky & Sweet” tour hits Poland, she just might take her four kids on a day trip to the Auschwitz concentration camp to remind them how very lucky they are.

Well, surely, little David could just remember back a few months, when he was stuck in a low-rent orphanage way down near the equator. But still, this is an extremely noble gesture from the superstar, who obviously thinks this might be an even more sobering experience than sitting through her concert night after night and watching mommy do aerobics to “Borderline.”

So, might Auschwitz become the new Disney World?

Instead of taking their kids to Cinderella Castle, will stars bring them to the ovens?
