There were a lot of things that happened today I’m sure. But today is also the anniversary where 67 years ago one of worst places in existence was liberated. It Auschwitz Concentration Camp in Oświęcim, Poland where on January 27th, 1945 the Red Army entered and drove the Nazis out. It was only the beginning of the knowledge however of how cruel and destructive this place actually was. I visited Auschwitz back in September while in Krakow and wasn’t really prepared for the place. I knew all the stories, read the history, etc, but it still lacks the reality of the place when you see it first hand. The photo is of the gate into Auschwitz I, Arbeit macht frei or Work makes freedom.
