Dachau

Best viewed in slideshow here.

...but you have no hope of freedom...

...those who were exterminated...

...dishonorable and defenseless...

...to steer you "right"...

...the voiceless...

...shining hope...

...continually crunching...

...electrified; tangled...

...snared; shot...

...gassed...

...destroyed.

    1. Thank you, Tea.

      Definitely, if you ever get a chance…

      The interesting thing is that it didn’t touch us as deeply as we expected. Unlike a location like the Ann Frank House in Amsterdam, where you can connect with an individual and feel their pain and suffering, in a place like Dachau the sheer enormity of it just becomes overwhelming.

      But you can’t help but be changed in some way after visiting such a place.

  1. I’ve felt for some time, that there are certain events, and certain people that can’t be captured by monuments or tourist stops… those are only for the innocent traveler who doesn’t really know the subject. Though many people have expressed different opinions regarding concentration camps, I think it’s enough to open a book and read about it. But I did like your picture of the wooden men. And for young people, who don’t know of the horror, and might not know of it otherwise… maybe it’s okay. I guess it depends on the person, and what is in his head when he arrives.
