A tale about my incredible journey in Lithuania 11

Chapter Eleven: The hard travel

 

In November Ambre and her roommate decided to go to Poland. They did a road trip, visiting Warsaw, Krakow and the horrible Auschwitz.

It was for them the most difficult travel of their life. Going to a place like that is not an easy decision to make but it’s a duty of memory.

They arrived in the city by train (how ironic). Everything was grey and foggy, like the weather knew what happened here and couldn’t change. The city of Auschwitz is quiet and seems out of time. They walked 20 to 30 minutes and they arrived to the gates of the concentration camp Auschwitz-Birkenau.

 

The atmosphere in the camp is really weighty. Tourists are speaking low, even the children are quiet like they knew that this place was haunted. The camp is crowed, people from all around the world are here to pay tribute to the victims of Nazis.

 

They left this place with the sounds of Jewish lamentations in their ears, and a weight in their heart.
