Last Tuesday I went with the ISP and some of the other interns to Dachau in Germany. It's one of the concentration camps left over from the Nazis.
It was intense.  It's very sad and in some ways chilling.  I was prepared for the sadness and intensity because I have been to Terezin, but it never gets easier.
Dachau felt removed from the horror than Terezin, maybe because the barracks had been torn down and then rebuilt.  It's larger than I expected, but not large. 
That I think is the worse part.  So many people in such small spaces. 

There are really no words to describe it.  I don't know if the photos do it justice either....
