... people are heavy smokers, unlike the Czech Republic where smoking was minimal. Credit card or cash are OK here when paying, in CZ it was always cash only! The air is very clean, neither of us have had sinus problems; usually at home after 10 minutes cycling my nose is leaking all over the place, here I've never had to carry a handkerchief whilst cycling.

In November Himmler ordered gassings to stop, and a 'cleanup' operation was inaugurated to conceal traces of the mass murder. In January 1945, the Germans evacuated 58,000 prisoners who could walk.
