When it comes to holiday jaunts, the site of a nuclear disaster zone, the home of a serial killer or the execution chamber of a former state prison won’t feature highly on everyone’s must see list.

But while it might not be everyone’s idea of fun, demand for macabre attractions and disturbing experiences that recreate horrific moments in history is growing – dark tourism is on the rise.

This session:
> defines dark tourism and the appeal of dark tourist sites
> discusses how Auschwitz-Birkenau has developed as the darkest tourist destination on earth
> assesses how Chernobyl is paving the way for nuclear tourism
> discusses the future of dark tourism.
