Taking the perfect selfie is quite difficult. If you have one of the latest phone models, then you have most likely taken a selfie at some point. Everyone is actually doing it these days and they have become so popular that somebody even invented the most innovative product of the century called the Selfie Stick, which allows narcissist.. err selfie addicts to take selfies without the risks of dropping their phone or getting their arms tired while trying to find the perfect angle.

Sure selfies are a bit necessary sometimes like capturing a particular moment. But there are certain times and locations where common sense dictates taking selfies is not appropriate. At a Holocaust memorial, for example.

That’s the main reason why Israeli satirist and author Shahak Shapira created a website to show why such selfies are so distasteful.

He grabbed a couple of selfie photos from other people’s Instagram, Tinder, Grindr and Facebook. Then he Photoshopped them to show how ridiculous the selfies would look if it was taken in the aftermath of the death camps.

Shahak Shapira wrote on her website, Yolocaust:

‘About 10,000 people visit the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe every day. Many of them take goofy pictures, jump, skate or bike on the 2,711 concrete slabs of the 19,000 m² large structure.

The exact meaning and role of the Holocaust Memorial are controversial. To many, the grey stelae symbolize gravestones for the 6 Million Jews that were murdered and buried in mass graves, or the grey ash to which they were burned to in the death camps.’

If one of these photos is yours, you can undouche yourself by sending him an email to have your pictures removed. Here’s his email address [email protected]
