Check this out. It's a link to a photo of a billboard advertising her show. I won't give it away. It's really ridiculous. And it's real.
I don't get it. Why is that ridiculous?

Big smiling Oprah next to the words "Oprah Goes To Auschwitz." It's the smiling part. Or maybe the Auschwitz part. Or maybe both of those things together.

I guess I can see your point. At the same time, for better or worse, Oprah reaches a lot of people. The more we can do to show viewers -- either for the first time, or just to remind them -- of the horrors that took place there, the better, I think. Depends on how she handles it.

The picture next to the statement is very odd. Her expression makes it seem like she's headed out to some new place to tape a few shows, like some shows might do to boost ratings.
Sort of like "The View in Las Vegas," or something similar.
