Photographer's Note

I took this photo at the deth camp in auschwitz.
It was a very cold day. It is unimaginable to belieive some of the things that took place here until they hit you in the face. I tried to catch the vastness of the place using repetion of the fence and chimneys.

As requisted- here a few more details.
In 1997 I went to Poland with my school. It's a rememberance trip that many 11th graders take in Israel.
It is not only to see the places where 6 million jews perished, but also to see the heritage they left behind. Whole towns were wiped out and little remains today. thus, it's important to try and preserve and by doing so- remember.

this part of Auschwitz is where (mainly) jews were sent to work and held in awful conditions, my grandmother was one of them. It is also where medical experiments were held by mengale. Nearby is the concentration camp.
