Abstract

Dark tourism is explored in relation to history and interpretation of atrocities and violations of human rights. Interpretation, ideology and power are discussed in the context of the historical relevance of commemoration. The interface with tourism is important since such dark sites appeal to consumers and can better inform their world view if the interpretation is accurate and has not been the subject of dilution or distortion.
