After a couple of great days in Krakow, we then visited Oswiecim, the location of the Auschwitz death camp. This was included in our tour, and I thought it was the most significant part of our itinerary.
I am honestly not ready to write about it yet. It was very emotional and personal and while I know it is important to talk about, I am not ready to do so. I can’t wrap my head around the inhumanity and horrors that happened where we were standing.
Irving and I may write more about our experience of visiting at a later time. We were deeply touched by what we saw and are thankful to have had the opportunity to learn about it. It is so important for the world to never forget.
I’m sure it was as moving as it sounds…..
I will always remember ——- though I was a youngster —— later generations only know it as history!
Do we ever learn from history or past experiences ??
Wow Kelley I can only imagine how disturbing that was.
When you are ready I am looking forward to hearing about it.
I am home now, but coming back to LA next week.
Visiting Auschwitz is a big one on my to do list – the holocaust fascinates me, but I can’t quite bring myself to go yet. A friend visited last year and said he’s never felt so emotionally exhausted so I can completely understand why you’re not ready to write about it but I’m going to follow you so I don’t miss the post when you are ready.
