I looked at the sky. I saw yellow fumes emerging from what I thought was a place where unhygienic becomes hygienic. I saw a pile of discarded clothes. Then realization dawned, and I had lost everything I loved.

Who am I? Where am I?

Hints: Year = 1942. Southern Poland. World Heritage.

Your hints would point to the Holocaust. Is he looking at a gas chamber which he thought was a shower area.

Well, you pretty much got it, but then I'm looking for who the person is, and where exactly he is standing. And yeah, I'm sorry if this puzzle doesn't really fit into the category of "lateral puzzles"... I'm new to this:-)!

is it a famous person?
someone Jewish?
adult? male?

where - referring to a specific death camp?
southern poland - so Auschwitz II (Birkinau)?

i'm also pretty new to this, and the people on this forum are DAMN good at solving these. I think this was a good puzzle, but you gave away a little too much information at the start : -)

***************** SPOILER!*****************
The man is a Jew, standing near the gas chambers in a concentration camp (Auschwitz II).

This was an easy-peasy-not-exactly-lateral-puzzle, but I had fun making it :-) Thanks everyone!
