... full blast, but I guess I could deal with that. The return trip took over 2 hours. Oh and I wanted a salad for dinner but couldn't find one so I took the next best thing, a kebab wrap that had lettuce, tomato and cucumber.
In the book I bought, there is a section about the debate of whether to call it a museum, memorial, or cemetery. Some wanted to plow it all under to erase it from the landscape. I am not ...

While we were in Poland, we decided to see Auschwitz. We found a tour that would take us from our hostel to both camps and back again. I've been to the Holocaust Museum in D.C. but Meagan never had so she didn't really know what to expect. It was...an experience. One that I hope never to go through again and will stay with me forever.
Auschwitz 1, the camp where it started was...hard to explain. If it hadn't been for the barbed wire and iron gate exclaiming what ...
