... and Russia agreed on splitting Poland in 1939 (the famous pact of non aggression), where the nazis assured Stalin they wanted to work "hand in hand" with him to invade Poland and share its land, also how Stalin's troops did not make a move to help the Warsaw uprising in 1944, leading to its crushing by the German troops.

... was very respectful, and it was clear that we were all there to pay our respects, and remember what happened.

The guided tour was however well worth it. We saw the "death house" where in the basement there were torture cells such as the starvation cell where they starved you ...

Tour to Auschwitz

A travel blog entry by markandbrenda on Jul 18, 2012

... a guide around who explained the stories of Auschwitz. People can walk around alone as well, but I think you would miss quite a lot doing it this way. It takes around 2 hours to walk Auschitz and close to the same for the much larger but less intact Birkenau.

A horrid place but also a must see. I'll say no ...
