Warning: This article contains images that readers might find disturbing. At first glance, the selfies are perfectly ordinary. They have hashtags; they have emojis star, smiley face, loveheart ; they feature a variety of athletic poses.
One man is juggling six yolo selfies balls. A woman strikes a yoga pose, another stands on one leg, two men leap from one pillar to another. Mr Shapira copied 12 selfies taken at the memorial from social media and published them on a website on Thursday. And Mr Shapira's trick was to de the website so that hovering over the images strips away the background of the memorial and replaces it with scenes from concentration camps, leaving the unwitting young selfie-takers suddenly surrounded by emaciated bodies and corpses. The website is called "Yolocaust", a combination of the popular social media hashtag Yolo - "you only live once" - and Holocaust.
It was a hit online and was picked up by a handful of news outlets that praised the idea as "powerful" and "stinging", and called the people in the images "foolish", "disrespectful", and "dumb-ass selfie-takers". Mr Shapira had been thinking about the idea for about a year before he started work on Wednesday, he said. I felt like people needed to know what they were actually doing, or how others might interpret what they were doing.
So he scanned through thousands of selfies on Facebook, Instagram, Tinder, and Grindr and settled on a dozen of the most extreme. The images were all on public social media s and he didn't seek permission from any of the holders. At the bottom of the site is an address - yolo selfies. The thing that makes the project provocative is "the people and the way they present themselves," rather than the shocking death scenes he has superimposed, he said.
I'm just changing the scenery. InBreanna Mitchell, an American teenager, posted a selfie on Twitter. A month later someone spotted her tweet and retweeted it, and within hours it had generated a backlash which spread from Twitter to traffic-hungry news sites to her mobile phone, which lit up with abuse and even death threats from people who had obtained hershe said. Ms Mitchell ed a growing of people who had made arguably ill-judged social media posts and were dealt an online public shaming in return.
Her picture generated a debate about appropriate behaviour at memorial sites. Karen Pollock is the chief executive of the London-based Holocaust Education Trust, which works with teachers and young people to prepare them for visits to Auschwitz and other Holocaust memorials. She called the Yolocaust images "powerful" and said she welcomed a debate about the issue, "but we would not want to chastise younger visitors for experiencing things in a different way to people of an yolo selfies generation", she added.
We try to have challenging conversations about what they want from a picture in that setting. And the man who deed the memorial agreed. Peter Eisenman, a New York architect, saw the Yolocaust site soon after it was published on Thursday. They've been sunbathing, they've been having lunch there and I yolo selfies that's fine. A memorial is an everyday occurrence, it is not sacred ground.
Mr Eisenman drew a clear distinction between the Berlin memorial and burial sites such as Auschwitz, which he said was "a different environment, absolutely". My idea was to allow as many people of different generations, in their own ways, to deal or not to deal with being in that place. And if they want to lark around I think that's fine. It isn't a burial ground, there yolo selfies no people under there. On Wednesday, as Mr Shapira was preparing to hit publish on his website, German far-right politician Bjoern Hoecke addressed a beer hall full of supporters in Dresden.
Referring to the Berlin memorial, he accused Germans of being "the only people in the world to plant a monument of shame in the heart of its capital" and called for a " degree turn" in Holocaust remembrance. The timing was a coincidence, according to Mr Yolo selfies, but he said his project was motivated in part by concern over a trend in European and US politics which he saw as a threat to the lessons of the Holocaust.
They're not there for me - for Jews - or for the victims, they are there for the people of today, for their moral compass. So they know not to elect the guys with the Hitler haircuts, because we could end up right where we were 80 years ago.
So far one person has ed to request that his picture be taken down, and Mr Shapira said the young man expressed regret over his pose. But the rest of the images will remain on the site and Mr Shapira may expand his project. It doesn't have to be one or the other, just having the debate is good. Related Topics.Yolo selfies
