- Re: BBC2 - How the Holocaust Began
What struck me most were the number of visitors taking photographs and selfies To me it seemed wholly inappropriate and showed utter disrespect and a complete disregard to those that were interred and/ or died there.
The other thing was, we were all wrapped up for winter (it was bitingly cold in Germany when we visited). Thermal underclothes, jeans, long sleeved shirt, jumper, thermal jacket, scarf, thermal hat, thermal gloves, full on walking boots. The whole shebang. And I weigh 16 stone. And we were still bloody freezing. It makes you wonder what it was like to be there wearing next to nothing over an emaciated body?
The irony is we had massive hot chocolate x2 each to warm ourselves up.
I can say I've been. I've always wanted to. But I would never ever, ever visit another concentration camp again. Ever. The feeling of hopelessness and desolation was completely overwhelming. I have never experienced anything like it in my life.
But I'm fascinated as to why and how such a highly literate and educated nation could fall off the moral cliff as far as Germany did.
