Auschwitz & Birkenau in 2008

Most people know Auschwitz & Birkenau as the concentration camps in the movie Schindler’s List. To this day, our visit to these spots remains the most emotionally draining experience in the short history of my existence.  We were overcome with emotions as we learned how more than a million men, women, and children lost their lives here.

Remember the scene from the movie where the kids had to hide in the “toilets” covered in feces and stench?

This was one of the hardest parts … we walked through the killing chambers, where they were led to believe they were going to get showered. It was beyond eerie and I wasn’t in there long.
