I write this post in memory of my dear family friend, Ethel Siederman. She was a Polish jew, who’s family escaped Poland before being thrown into this camp of evil.
Coming into the camp was heavy. We were all trying to be emotionally ready. Sadly, we were not.
As we got to the camp, there was a sudden sadness that swept over us. Knowing that so many people died here, was brutally depressing. The smell of burning flesh, was probably the last sense of reality they had. The worst part, the camp goes on for miles.
The picture above is the ruins of a gas chamber. As they were losing the war, the Nazis destroyed the gas chambers to hide the evidence.
Hey ladies and gentlemen, I posted this today because it was the day she going to visit me. May she rest in peace. She helped my family out a lot. There was always a positive moment with her. At the age of 83, she was still traveling.
Much love to you all!! Next week, it will be on a more positive note. We will be Prague! Stay healthy!!!
