... limbs, glasses & shoes. A large room full of human hair. Photo after photo of people with blank stares and shaved heads who you knew were not too much later cruelly murdered.* Stories of completely senseless, inhumane cruelty and stories of courage and valour. Seeing where they collapsed, literally exhaused after 11 hours of hard labour and too little food on bunk beds, on floors covered in straw like oversized rabbit hutches, on straw covered stacks of ...
