    Our tour guide wanted us to understand clearly when those packed into the rail cars climbed down from the cars into Auschwitz, everyone was directed either right or left. Eighty percent were told to go right; all women, children, elderly and infirm went right and straight into the gas chambers, five of them, all connected to their own crematorium.

    ... intact.

    When Rosalind and I were here, there were no tour guides because there were no tours. You walked up, paid a few Zlotys and went in and walked around.

    ... the hair of tens of thousands of victims and this hit Jo and I particularly hard. There was no dignity, even in death, when dealing Nazi Germany and the Third Reich.

    After the first camp, we had a short break and then visited the much larger Auschwitz II Birkenau. Auschwitz I looked like a cakewalk compared to this monster of a camp. This one had train lines that would run right up into the middle of the camp. All the prisoners would get out of the ...
