It feels like I am moving around so fast! its so crayz! just arrived in prague today and it seems quite nice here. a lot more run down that most of the places i have been so far, but it is still nice despitr the grafitti and dirt everzwhere )i havent even looked round the cuty yet, i shoulkdnt be so judging!)
so zeah zesterdaz we went to auschwitz which was an experience I probably wont forget. It didnt really affect me the waz I thought it would, but it was a verz sombering time. there were two different parts which i didnt know before i went, there was a third but its not open to the public. the first one we went to and spent a long time there, and it had been turned into a sort of museum with stuff in all the old barracks. it wasnt the place that thez had gas chambers, although thez tested the gas here first and towards the end they used the crematoriums as gas chambers awell. there were rooms full of the belongings of all the prisorners and it wa so shocking. there was one room just full of hair, and another that had a huge ball of thousands of pairs of glasses all wrapped together. thez had two rooms for shoes, one for babies and one for adults. that was the worst, seeing how manz children.
after there we went to birkineau or auschwitz 2 as it used to be known, this was a lot more real, like the barracks were all still there, and there were two gas chambers that the natzis had attempted to pull down at the end of the war to cover up what they had done, but you coul still see so much of it. there was all the rooms where thez slept aswell, and these places were meant to house 52 horses but instead were used to sleep 400 prisoners. there were hundered of these in rows. it was just incomprehensible.
Im glad I went, its made me realise that I shouldnt complain about stupid things, after seeing these tiny rooms less than 1m square that were used as a cell for 4 people at a time, sometimes known as suffocation chambers. that just made me feel sick and I had to leave. I just dont have any right to complain about stupid things like ebing cold or having sore feet.
but i reccomend going to anyone, its an experience not to miss.Â
