We went to a concentration camp today. It was raining and I was very cold, but not as cold as they were. I was frightened by the enormous pyramid of ashes, but not as frightened as they were. I felt angry when I heard some German start yelling, but not as angry as they were. And I cried when I was by myself, but not as often as they did.

When I was at Dachau, years ago, German school children (appx. 12-16) were running around and giggling.

At Dachau. Giggling.

I just linked this post, which I thought was exceptionally well-written.
