... is a virus, an infestation, industrial and the subject of which are selected groups human beings...Dehumanize. And that my loved ones is exactly what happened.

The next day we jumped on a bus to Oswiecim (we just found the bus at the Krakow bus station and bought the tickets from the driver) to visit the concentration camp called 'Auschwitz'. This was an eye-opening experience. We viewed the living quarters, the gas chamber and the crematorium next door where the bodies were cremated. The seemingly endless piles of belongings in ...
