Today is National Holocaust Day, marking 70 years since Auschwitz was liberated. This is not what I would typically blog about but whilst in Poland visiting friends in 2012 my family & I visited Auschwitz and saw for ourselves the vivid reminders of the atrocities the prisoners endured. Seeing these camps with our own eyes had a profound effect on us all.
The train tracks at Birkenau.
So today survivors & families gather to honour the victims and remember...
If you ever find yourself near Krakow I would recommend you visit so these atrocious are never forgotten. There is a recommended lower age limit for children due to the images & collections within the museum.
