My friends and I (5 of us total) are going to a local radio stations Halloween party/concert at a nearby music venue. Its 13 and older but we are mainly guessing it will be college students and people in their 20's there. The only rules are no masks or inflatable/real weapons of any kind. My friend had the idea that she dresses up like Hitler and the 4 of us dress up like Concentration camp victims. We would scribble numbers on our arms and wear bald caps, cut out the nazi symbol from a piece of paper and tape it to our clothes. We were thinking striped pajamas. Then we would buy black grease paint and smear it everywhere to make ourselves look dirty. Spirit Halloween sells a Hitler costume. However, would this upset or offend a lot of people? Were trying to stand out in the crowd but not offend people. This was NOT my idea, again it was my friends idea, I suggested we dress up like possessed people and she said that would be too much work. My other friend suggested Ghostbusters but the reviews online said the outfits rip and are cheaply made and they were 2 out of 5 stars.

I know I'll get a lot of hate for this but I actually had this idea a while back that the scariest Halloween costume would be a concentration camp victim as a zombie.
If someone came to my place on Halloween dressed like that I'd probably shit myself and give that person all the candy.
It would be the most terrifying and taboo costume I could think off.
The problem is however, although I believe in free speech and freedom of expression you will upset a lot of people. You might be the victim of violence and possibly receive death threats.
It would be best to choose something else.1

You're on VERY thin ice with the concentration camp victim idea. Keep in mind costumes are thought to ridicule people, and while I, and probably most other people, think it's perfectly fine to make fun of and ridicule hitler, doing that to the millions of people who were hunted, killed, etc seems pretty tasteless to me.
If you wanna do a NS based theme, just all go as hitler and if someone asks say you're his immortal clones from a secret Nazi experiment.2
