Auschwitz

... Russian have one. I spent a fair bit of time in the Polish one, to see how the nazi simply wanted the polish land to cease to exist, to destroy the polish culture to make space for the German one. How their army defeated the polish one, how Warsaw was annihilated, but also how the Poles had an underground government, education system, army... to keep the polish flame alive while Germany was having its way on the surface.

The mountain stage in the land of pierogi

... 8211; I walked the short side of the rectangle and it must have been a mile long. This was the camp built to supersede Auschwitz when the Nazis stepped up their plans. Here, the people that were not murdered upon arrival were housed in hundreds of wooden huts, which looked a lot like chicken coops for humans. In one 56 day period in 1944, 466,000 Hungarian Jews were systematically slaughtered. This is the equivalent to killing everyone ...

Friends, Fun, and... Fake Murders!

... to sing and/or perform their announcement. It was so funny to listen to Anna from Minnesota rap her announcement about Bible study or Marek, the student intern for Zabrze, sing about our day.

Off to a great start!

While everyone else started to warm-up for rehearsal, the band got together to rehearse a winter medley. Yup, that's right! We are performing a winter medley come mid-November. We will be singing Jingle Bells, Sleigh Ride, O Tannenbaum, and ...
