Auschwitz study tour: day 3

The delegation visited Auschwitz 1 (death camp) today (Friday) where we witnessed the recorded atrocities committed by the Nazi Third Reich. It was an emotional experience for those attending. We visited various blocks representing the various nations and categories of people selected for extermination. The group also visited crematoria one and the gas chamber before laying a wreath and individual flowers at the death wall commemorating those exterminated there for resistance, helping prisoners and other selfless acts.

Tomorrow (Saturday) we will mark international workers memorial day and commemorate Jane Haining with her niece Deirdre McDowell.
