    I'm assuming OP is trying to compare the Auschwitz survivors' struggle to stay alive with this girl's choice to end her life.

    Which I don't really think you can do, but I understand what they're trying to say...

    I see where the OP is coming from, but I don't agree with it at all.

    The comparison is daft.

    They're hinting the only reason she killed herself was because she got arrested...
    If that's true then I have to agree with OP, just a silly girl who threw a hissy fit when she didn't get her own way.
    If, there are major underlying issues that caused her to commit suicide then I would understand

    You can't know that for sure. We may never know the real reason behind why she did it and we certainly won't know her exact feelings and thoughts just before she did it.

    So making comments like that is not only insensitive but stupid.

    Really? Because she actually killed herself. So it probably wasn't attention seeking because you have to be alive to reap the benefits of attention seeking.
    Poor girl. And her poor family too....
