... flowers. Amazing! Dinner at the hotel with Wojtek, his wife Gabriella and five year old son William. Wojtek works in historical archives and is helping me uncover my family history. Lovely young people who then took us to see their house which they are slowly restoring. It looks as if it hasn't been touched in its hundred years and needs much restoration. At present it is uninhabitable. A real labour of love! Tomorrow Zakopane in the Tatra ...

For a very na´ve child it was the first (then unbelievable) ...
... museum lay flowers in remembrance & the whole courtyard had a very uneasy feeling about it.
On one side of the courtyard 2 wooden posts stand on a slight angle & at the top is a hook. Here the Nazis would punish those that had conspired to create an uprising or escapes. The prisoners would have their hands tied behind their backs & would then be lifted to hang on the hooks by the hands, dislocating both shoulders & then shot dead.
It is sickening ...
