    Only 5kms away from the polish border in the morning, and having had a pretty flat road up until then, I was thinking to myself "it seems like the main road is following a valley so it should be flat all the way through".

    ... it is perhaps natural for the next generation to question – ‘did it really happen?’ not out of any perceived anti-Semitism, but the fact that such scale of human extermination is truly hard to imagine.

    ... 1940, and then as a PoW camp for Soviets. The Germans had found a ready made facility at the Polish town of Oswiecim in the form of a big Polish army base, complete with block upon block of sturdy, brick barracks: a prison camp ready and waiting. At this stage in its career, Auschwitz was a conventional National Socialist Konzentration Lager. Many of the first Polish prisoners died in gruelling and thankless work trying to drain nearby swampy land, the intention being to create ...
