yes.. however.. just think of it like this.. for many people this place is like Auchswitz.. people were murdered, raped and worked to death in this place. If you wouldn't carve your name into the wall at a Nazi death camp, then you probably shouldn't do it at a slave camp either. Just my opinion... but to answer you, yes this is the same place
