On the 9th we toured both Auschwitz and Birkenau Camps ,

It was a beautiful day and quite hard to comprehend all that occurred in these places .
I had hoped to have gone to Germany too,to the staglag my Dad was in but time ran out .
Great collage of photos...This tour must bring up many emotions.

In the Netherlands, we have a programme that sends young offenders of hate crimes to the former Concentration Camps in order to learn what the consequences can be ... one can only hope, it helps.

Sad and thought provoking - I visited a museum in Israel when on the kibbutz many years ago. Quite overwhelming what went on.

We visited Dachau several years ago. This was a part of history that I hope will never be forgotten nor repeated!

Just finished a book about Germany during WWII and have just begun another about the concentration camps. (Both Book Club books). I wonder how anyone could do these things to other people. Hope your dad survived his time in the camp. A friend of mine's father was in one, too.
