... summer... All the red bricks in the sun, the barb wires and the ruins of the chimneys... In the other part, Auschwitz I camp / museum, you see the tons of hair of the women killed, the shoes, the glasses, all the proofs of the gigantic murder...

... They were a little quiet in the way to Auschwitz. Phil showed a video produced by the Russians about the "liberation"of the camp.
