    ... I can say to prepare you for the fact they used the hair from these prisoners to make uniforms for German troops. There is nothing I can do to prepare you for the chill of walking into one of the barracks rooms. You have to feel it for yourself. Never again. Even that phrase loses its meaning and becomes trite.

    Auschwitz. How do you describe the magnitude of what happened there. Words; depressing, disbelief, anger, sadness, hope, sin, a horrible world, resistance. Here are some things I remember from the tour. An Orchestra was used to keep people in time to match out to work. Colorful shoes and sandals in the masses of shoes in the display. A display with masses of hair cut from people's heads. The suitcases with names and addresses of people (like we have on our bags) that ...
