    I think seeing this synagogue and cemetery would be heart-breaking, knowing what happened to so many people during the Holocaust. The pictures from the cemetery are sad, but also have a quiet dignity. Thank you for including the last shot.

  18. Heart rending but beautiful post especially of the children's art. Amazing too how the cemetery had up to 12 layers of graves.

    It is sad that humanity was at its worst during WWII! I can understand how depressing it must have been to enter that site.
