On Instagrams from Auschwitz

This is an issue for contemporary aid workers as well. At my wife's UN security training she was told not to take photographs with child soldiers, for example. And there is a big debate about using photographs of human suffering (especially children) in marketing materials for NGOs.

I wonder, if the few groups trying to bring awareness to the Holocaust as it was happening had access to photos from the camps, would they have put them on billboards and bus shelters? Would it have been right to do so?
