... the Nazi's and all the destruction they caused. We also visited the holocaust memorial - which is a huge area with various size blank stones.

If they thought you were a threat they killed you right there. They wanted everyone to see that and feel scared so they would never disobey. They would then strip them of ...

... They were Estonian, he mentioned he knew Australia quite well cause he'd spent a few years working here. No big deal, most Estonians have. Next thing we know, his stories include working on an undercover marijuana farm in Perth; winning a combi van in a poker game in Adelaide and driving it to Sydney, along which trip it overheated and had to be abandoned to instead hitchhike the last 300km; spending 3 months sleeping on the streets and beaches due to a tax ...
