AUSCHWITZ BIRKENAU







Photos by me

During our four day trip to Krakow, Poland last week we also decided to visit Auschwitz Birkenau, which was one of the most famous German Nazi concentration camps during the second world war. As well in primary as in secondary school I've learned a lot about the holocaust and second world war. Also because my grandparents had actually went through, this period didn't seem so far back in time while other historical events did. Must say I have never visited a place so impressive and horrible before. Seeing the camp I've heard so much horrible stories about through life in real left me speechless. I think everyone should visit Auschwitz Birkenau at least once in life. Have you guys ever been here? Love, Anne

  1. Lijkt me heel heftig om te bezoeken, maar ik ben na alle lessen op de middelbare school wel heel benieuwd geworden naar deze plekken. Mooi dat jij het nu allemaal hebt kunnen zien!

  2. Hier wil ik al heel lang een keer heen, lijkt me vreselijk maar wel enorm indrukwekkend. Met geschiedenis als hoofdvak in mijn vakkenpakket moet ik hier wel echt een keer heen eigenlijk. Mooie foto's heb je gemaakt, door het zwart-wit te maken geef je extra de gubere sfeer weer!

  3. I still can't believe that our people went through this. It's horrifying. I would love to visit Auschwitz one day.
