(From our March 2016 trip)
Ever since seeing Schindler’s List on my 22nd birthday (what an incredible piece of cinematography) I have wanted to visit Auschwitz or any concentration camp really for that matter. It seems like a weird thing to want to do I guess and may be borderline morbid but I think of it more as wanting to learn more about the atrocities we as human’s can inflict on each other and with a hope of doing better than the last few generations in teaching my children not to judge people by the colour of their skin, their ethnicity, their sexual orientation, their politics, their religion etc. I really just want my children to judge people on whether they are a complete dickheads or not to put it in basic terms. And for me there is almost a disbelief that people can be so cruel to others and just wanting to learn more about negative things that shaped history.
