This is a picture of the wooden barracks (through barbed wires) found in the Nazi Concentration Camp in Auschwitz, Poland, where I visited this past winter.
I must say the whole town was enveloped with this gloomy sensation, and it was a pretty dark trip, to see what happened in World War 2.
Prior to this trip, I did some researching about Auschwitz, and posted a question on an online travel forum. Almost immediately I was bombarded by replies, asking me why would anyone even want to visit such a place. Well, first and foremost, I for one do not believe in the concept of Ignorance is bliss. To me, ignorance leads on to stupidity, which later transpires into atrocious montrosity that neither you or me could fathom. And there was a saying amongst the holocause survivors- 'Never Forget'. Which I think is a strong and powerful message. We learn from our mistakes and move forward.
Anyway, hope you guys have a good week photohunting.
