for all to see, if I am not mistaken I think this one has the bones on the inside and the outside is restored as such in line with the bone structure, would have been nice to show how long the body was.

Display was absolutely out of context of the event. Each of the human remain was displayed on its own in different display area, exposed to the elements or in glass case. It could have been presented in away to provide education purposes.

Such a tragic ending both for the people concerned and the site as poorly displayed through dirty glass would have been lovely to have walked inside rather than looking through the glass which clearly doesn't get cleaned

To see people in final poses and even a dog with his collar on has to touch you in some way. It made the whole exhibit a bit more human.
