My visit to Auschwitz

travels

28th January 2018 is commemorated as International Holocaust Remembrance Day, political leaders and Jewish officials warned that the Nazi genocide must never cease serving as a reminder of the evil of which humans are capable.

Here are some photos from my last solo trip to Auschwitz:-

It was one and a half hours trip from Krakow. Can’t remember much from the bus trip except that when the documentary was played on the bus, everyone cried.

A woman asked if she could stay on the bus when we got to the Museum.

An emotional bus ride for everyone.

The ashes from 1940-1945

Auschwitz was the largest Nazi German Concentration Camp and Death Camp

In the years 1940-1945, The Nazis deported at least 1,300,000 people to Auschwitz

"Jews are a race that must be totally exterminated"

“Jews are a race that must be totally exterminated”

Lost for words

I’ve always seen photos of Auschwitz but when I got to the camp and the barracks, I was lost for words..

“Gradually it was disclosed to me that the line separating good and evil passes not through states, nor between classes, nor between political parties either — but right through every human heart — and through all human hearts. This line shifts. Inside us, it oscillates with the years. And even within hearts overwhelmed by evil, one small bridgehead of good is retained. And even in the best of all hearts, there remains … an unuprooted small corner of evil.

Since then I have come to understand the truth of all the religions of the world: They struggle with the evil inside a human being (inside every human being). It is impossible to expel evil from the world in its entirety, but it is possible to constrict it within each person.”

― Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago 1918-1956
