Unfortunately we could spend only a couple of hours there as it was an approximately 65 mile ride to Emmersdorf but I could've spent a whole day there. There's a beautiful museum there that I found both moving and educational. One particular exhibit that caught my eye was a bicycle. The bike was given to Stanislaw Kudlinski, a Polish prisoner, by some nuns in
Linz. Rather than wait for arrangements to be made to return to his homeland, he rode the bicycle all the way back to Poland.
As I've said before, this trip really is not about the bike. And this was one of those days that reinforced that notion. The cold shower I had to take at camp that night reminded me that I was blessed to be born in a different place at a different time and that lessons in history should never be forgotten.
