    Seems kinda like a sad subject but we never made it to go and see the camp.

    We went to Dachau and took some pictures. One day, I'll post some of them. It's true what your friend says. Nothing can prepare you for what is behind those gates. The gate to all camps have "Arbeit Macht Frei" written on them which roughly means "work makes freedom" That's usually where it hits you.

    Thanks for sharing your friend's story.

    I think I'll go there by this year.
    I live 12 miles away from Mauthausen (a camp which is not that big as Auschwitz but sad enough). I think I gotta share some pics.
