Me and Hero were talking about our visits to concentration camps (via work/school), and I was just wondering if anybody else has visited any, and what your experience of them was.

I personally went to Auschwitz-Birkenau and personally whilst it being a shocking, sombre experience, you did get a feeling as to just how bad this really was. In the Birkenau barracks, in early October time, I was wearing 3 layers, yet the wind cut right through your body, and it made you wonder just how bad it was for the poor people who were sadly put in these places.

Places like this need to be standing for generations to see the evil man is caperble of.

Slightly off topic, Olly, but if you want to read a deeply moving account of an Auschwitz survivor, then find a copy of 'If This Is a Man' by Primo Levi. It's a beautifully crafted book about his time in the camp and goes a fraction of the way to describing the horror they went through.

I read a lot of books and a very, very small selection stay with me forever. This is one of them.

Location : There are fewer more distressing sights than that of an Englishman in a baseball cap. And we'll die in the class we were born, well that's a class of our own my love. A class of our own my love. Did you see the stylish kids in the riot, cos mine beat me up then set the night on fire. Wombles bleed, truncheons and shields, you know I cherish you my love. Oh how I cherish Julius my love.

Cheers Tino, will keep an eye out for it.
