Well, I like it. Itīs an excellent way to not forget what happened then. The only "but", if that it could be considered a "military" model.

Superbly done - and sensitively done, I think.

I wouldnt call it "nice" but its very competently done.

As to suitability, I would say that it depends on context.

While its a sensitive subject I think this is very thought provoking and tastefully done.

If you've ever been to Auschwitz you'll know that even today, seventy years on, it's a silent, grim place with a heavy atmosphere, even in bright sunlight. Not sure I approve of anything connected with the concentration camps becoming the subject of a model. It smacks of disrespect.

Incidentally, the famous gateway with the railway line running through it isn't actually at Auschwitz, it's at Birkenau a kilometre or so up the road.

I don't see how this could be disrespectful.
This is a great piece of art.

Anything that reminds us what bastards we can be to one another, if we allow ourselves to be, can only be positive.

Very fine model, whatever your point of view.
I agree with a lot of the points above.
Cheers - Phil.
