I’m posting this as a backpacker myself with an aim to gather some research on backpackers perspectives on ‘Dark Tourism’ also known as thanatourism. With this, I pose the question of, why do we visit sites of disaster such as Auchwitz, or Ground Zero? What interests us and is there a difference between visiting say Auchwitz compared with Ground Zero? Is it ethically correct or should we leave the site in peace? What are your views!?
