Auschwitz - Death revisited

... by the ‘Butcher of Lyons’ Klaus Altman (or Klaus Barbie), to those turned in by Axis and other nations, whose silent part in rounding up their own Jewish population, and tacit collaboration has never been fully revealed.

Late in 1944, with Allied landings having taken place in Normandie, and the Russians closing in from the East, the camp had finally begun to run it’s course. Such was the magnitude of killings, that the bodies ...

It is a sort of homage pilgrimage; a way of paying respect to those who suffered at the hands of such brutal captors. The day is hot, and there are no clouds to give even brief respite from the sun's strength. Somehow this seems wrong. How can the sun shine here?
