This must never ever happen again

Auschwitz is one of those places that is difficult to describe. We visited both camps in 2015, but somehow I felt I needed to go back and visit Birkenau one more time. Appearances are deceiving; in some ways it looks so innocent, but everything about it tells a different story. From the cattle wagons on the train tracks, the thin walls of the barracks making it freezing cold in winter, and of course the remains of the ovens on the far side of the camp.

This is a place that needs to be remembered, it needs to be visited. We need to know what we are capable of, and we need to do everything we can to prevent this from ever happening again.

    I have never been there but I really would like to go, I have Jewish ancestry and the history of the camps just boggles my mind.

      Its a very disturbing place to visit, but its very interesting. Somewhere you should go to so you can be reminded of where words can take us.
