Continuing in our tradition of early morning walks to the bus, we made it to the main station ten minutes before our 7:10 minibus left for a town called Oswiecim. Yesterday we had wonderful weather in Krakow. By wonderful I mean no snow. We woke up this morning to six fresh inches on the ground. The bus ride was about an hour and a half and we froze the whole way there.

The bus dropped us of at a stop right outside of the town. Near this town are the ...

Many of these prisoners were executed minutes after their arrival. As the sun set over the trees ...

A Tour of Auschwitz and the Salt Mine

... Then we arrived at the main cathedral. It's 300 meters under ground, and huge. It can hold between 500-600 people. It's absolutely breathtaking. We took lots of pictures, but I don't think they will capture the magic of the room. Huge chandeliers, a gorgeous altar, and scenes all around the room. At the opposite end of the cathedral is a larger than life statue of Pope John Paul II. Most of the work was done by amateur sculptors who worked in the mines.They actually hold weddings ...
