walk see cry krakow

Today we spent some heartbreaking, exhausting hours at Auschwitz - and just like the visit to Robben Island I can't stop crying or thinking about the senselessness. I will write and show more in a later post - and with a long bus ride there wasn't much else done. But so be it, it was a must visit. It should be a must visit for EVERYONE.

it was good to get soul soothing things done and seen today too. like good tea, great food, lovely cafes and the sweetness of animals.

good night, krakow ~

One of the most moving experiences of my life was going to the Holocaust museum in Washington, DC. I cried and cried and cried.

I still don't really have the words for it.

Thank you.
My father was a German Jew. To the end of his days he refused to talk about his family - or the war. We believe his father died in one of the camps, and perhaps a sibling.

When my daughter went on her trip with People To People they went to Mauthausen in Austria. In her written report she wrote: "The next day in Austria was also pretty packed. We first went to Mauthausen, one of the most infamous concentration caps of WWII. It was a moving yet disturbing experience. I just found it hard to believe that humans can be that cruel to each other. I don't know how to put into words how I felt while I was there, I'm not sure if I ever will be able to." She took a lot of picture and I've since figured out that it was a way to protect herself by hiding behind the camera. To this day she won't talk about it.
