arbeit macht frei...

i was looking through some of my photos from my last trip to Europe in 2006 and i picked a handful of photos that i wanted to share with you from when i visited the Auschwitz concentration camp...

this place can be found in southern Poland near the city of Oswiecim... it is divided into two main parts and the entrance that you see above is the the older and smaller part of the camp...

the feeling when walking through the gate is really eerie... it is like stepping into some kind of abyss where all human feelings have disappeared during World War II... the place has a very heavy aura surrounding it... knowing that so many people were simply wiped off the face of the Earth right there...

the words above the gate mean "work makes free"...
