TWO Israeli students have been sent home from a school trip to a Nazi death camp in Poland after they were caught dancing naked at the site, it has emerged.

The pair sparked outrage after security guards at Majdanek, where tens of thousands of Jews were murdered during the Holocaust, spotted them on CCTV.

According to Israeli newspaper Haaretz, the two students from the northern province of Emek Hamayanot were flown home on Sunday following the incident at the site near Lublin, eastern Poland on Friday.

The Israeli Education Ministry told the paper it "views with great severity any behaviour that could harm the status and values represented by the trips to Poland.

"In the case in question, due to the students' improper and inappropriate behaviour, disciplinary actions have been taken against them to the fullest."

A police spokesman in eastern Poland said an Israeli teen has admitted to dropping his pants at the former Nazi death camp and is facing a fine.

Andrzej Fijolek said an unnamed 17-year-old was caught on CCTV cameras as he let down his pants by one of the wooden barracks at the Majdanek museum.

Museum wardens notified the police and the teen confessed to the act during questioning.

It's reported the second teen received a warning.

Majdanek has seen several high-profile incidents of theft and desecration.

In 2014, officials said eight shoes of former prisoners were stolen from the museum which holds a total of 280,000 shoes belonging to victims of the camp, with several thousand on display.

In 2013, a prisoner’s cap stolen from the museum two decades previously was pulled from an eBay auction in the United States where it was valued at $1,750.

In 2015, footage from Stutthof concentration camp near Gdansk sparked anger after it showed a group of naked people playing tag in a death chamber.

The video was first used as part of a 2015 exhibit titled “Poland – Israel – Germany. The experience of Auschwitz".

In a garbled explanation, Poland's Art Museum claimed it was inspired by "a part of history that is treated as 'untouchable' and about overly painful memories".

Protests from Jewish groups forced the Museum of Contemporary Art to pull the exhibit but they later reinstated it using the defence of freedom of artistic expression, the Times of Israel reported at the time.
