Auschwitz Gets a Name Change, Kinda

After a long fight on the part of Poland, the United Nations will rename the Auschwitz death camp on its list of World Heritage sites to make clear it was run by Germans not Poles.

From now on, Auschwitz will be known as "Auschwitz-Birkenau Nazi German Concentration and Death Camp."

The U.N. won't stop genocide in Darfur, but it will sure rename a death camp for you -- after the fact. That's nice. And is it possible that people are under the impression Auschwitz was a Polish Nazi Death Camp?

Go get em Poland.

(But everyone is still going to call it Auschwitz.)
