Image of The Week: Poland – A Bone Chilling Silence

This image was taken in early 1994 during my visit to the Auschwitz Concentration Camp on the outskirts of Krakow (Poland). It was a cold and foggy day, that gave the place a very eerie feeling indeed. Walking through the grounds of the camp, and trying to comprehend the horrors that took place here was difficult. What made the visions in my head even more vivid, was that we watched the recently released movie ‘Schindler’s List’ the night before in a cinema in Krakow.
