Management at the Holocaust memorial site at Auschwitz-Birkenau has sharply criticised Irish writer, John Boyne.
They tweeted to say his novel The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas "should be avoided by anyone who studies or teaches factual history of the Holocaust".
We understand such concerns, and we have already addressed inaccuracies in some '...of Auschwitz' books published.January 5, 2020
The novel set at the camp was a bestseller when it was released, and was adapted for the screen in 2017.
It is after Mr Boyne argued publishers were using references to the Nazi death camp in book titles to "build a genre that sells well".
"I can't help but feel that by constantly using the same three words, (and) then inserting a noun, publishers (and) writers are effectively building a genre that sells well," Mr Boyne tweeted.
"The subject matter," he argued, "should be treated with a little more thought (and) consideration."
