Auschwitz


A strange feeling overcomes you when it becomes apparent that you are at the location of one of the greatest crimes ever committed. At first it is hard to believe. The weather was pristine, the breeze refreshing, but as soon as I looked around, the brutal truth was right in front of me. Historians estimate that 1.1 million people were murdered right where I was standing. That is a hard truth to face.
