21/25: Auschwitz / by Simon Mooney

21/25. "Auschwitz is just down the road Tom, we should go and see it tomorrow." I was in the kitman's hotel room two days before England played Poland. "Not only are we going Mooney," he said, "we’re taking the boys with us.” And off he went, down the corridor to knock on manager Sven Goran Eriksson’s door. The next morning, an enterprising local photographer followed the team bus as it set off to a mystery destination on a day with no scheduled media activity. He got a telephoto lens version of this shot which made newspapers around the world and, a few months later, Sven was invited to talk about the visit at Westminster Hall in London on Holocaust Memorial Day alongside the Queen, Prime Minister and British survivors of the concentration camps.
