        Probably the exactly same feeling I had walking through Auschwitz-Birkenau. There aren’t any words in our language adequate enough to describe it.

        A friend of mine went through Auschwitz and the one thing that stuck out for her was the quiet. It was eerily quiet.

      • joannesisco says:

        It’s a pretty overwhelming experience. People tend to be stunned into silence or whisper very quietly. Yes – for all the people there – the quiet is definitely noticable.

      It’s an extremely sobering place. I couldn’t wrap my head around how anyone could be so evil as to coldly calculate the mass murder of a single race, as well as certain groups of people. It’s incomprehensible.

        I couldn’t stay longer than an hour because there was so much to process. I hope eventually there is a perpetual touring exhibit for many who can’t go to DC.

        A touring exhibit would be great. It’s a significant part of history that should never be repeated.

  1. A good choice for a Wordless Wednesday. There are no words to say.

    I’ve visited Dachau in Munich and S-21 and the Killing Fields in Cambodia. I’ll never understand it. But I also now fear that in years to come people will be visiting a museum at the Australian-run detention centre on Nauru and they will be wondering how we could let such unspeakable things happen.

    • bikerchick57 says:

      I didn’t know that Nauru existed. Will read more about this when I get a chance. Sounds like our Guantanamo Bay, only worse.

      • Much worse. Because the people being held there have done nothing but seek safety from us. It’s an ongoing horror and unfortunately we have two major parties hell-bent on racing each other to the bottom of the cruelty barrel.
