The entertainment company Rubicon in Greece finally canceled a game in which players use clues to escape from a room themed around the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp.  The company which is located in the northern Athens suburb of Galatsi, in recent weeks advertised the Auschwitz “escape room” on social media. The game was shut down after complaints and thousands negative comments by various websites online and people in the social media. Read bellow the description of the game:

“In frozen Poland, the walls of the crematorium of the infamous Nazi concentration camp for prisoners, primarily of Jewish origin, still reek of burnt human flesh, they say,” a promotional text for the game read. “Take on the role of a prisoner still looking for signs of life from loved ones, dare to stay  in the shadow of the historic crematorium, discover the big secret and escape before you, too, turn into ashes.”
