On the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the liberation of concentration camp Auschwitz in Poland, I upload some impressions of my 2008 trip. Can’t repeat often enough that any young German shall visit the two sites in Auschwitz and Birkenau to maybe get at least the spark of an idea what horror crimes had been commited here…
