{birkenau} more haunting

January 10, 2017

After visiting the haunting Auschwitz (or Oświęcim) concentration camp, we were reloaded onto the shuttle van and taken over to Birkenau. Birkenau is well known for the train tracks that lead into this camp and photographers often take haunting photos of these tracks. While Auschwitz was scary to walk around, it was even more difficult to visit this second locations were where conditions were even worse and prisoners kept in even less sanitary conditions (though that seems impossible). What a scary and sad place to visit though I’m glad I did because it makes these places that I’ve heard about since I was little become real.
