In usual efficient German fashion we were up at the crack of dawn...11:30 am (hey its 3:30 am Canadian time). We purchased our 48 hour metro tickets and headed downtown for our 2:00 pm walking tour first grabbing a quick and delish bite to eat first (prosciutto and blue cheese and salami and camembert cheese sandwiches). This was our fourth walking tour and we have had great success as the guides have all been extremely knowledgeable and entertaining, most have been ...

It stands somewhat poetically in a graveyard, itself a tombstone to a political system long since expired. Having seen what I've seen around the world I'm somewhat of an anti-Communist (ultimately, human rights are more important than most other things) and I'll admit I allowed myself a sly smirk at the sight of this much-maligned structure sitting among a load of graves. I'm still ...
... was built in 1936 by prison labor. It was the first new camp after the appointment of Himmler. It was designed & laid out as a model for future concentration camps. In 1938 the administration of all camps was transferred here. More than 200,000 were imprisoned here between 1936 & 1945. Tens of thousands died of starvation, maltreated or murdered by the SS.
