    ... the victims of the holocaust.  To either side of the memorial is gas chambers II and III which were destroyed by the Germans before the camp was liberated.    Beside the gas chambers were the lakes where the ashes were dumped afterward.   All very moving.

I thought to myself, "hmm, I bought tissues and vitamin c.. Maybe it's because she knows I'm sick?" Yet, I wasn't so sold on that theory.
