- Auschwitz is one of the most notorious concentration camps. Nothing can prepare you for the feeling you feel while visiting. I visited during the 70th anniversary of the end of WWII. A lot of people won’t visit places like Auschwitz. Recently, some of the people visiting places like Auschwitz or Pearl Harbor are treating it like Disney World. I think it’s important for people to visit places like Auschwitz to reflect. I am not German or Jewish or Polish. I did not have any relatives who fought in World War II. I do not know a single person who knew any Nazis or Jewish prisioners. I have no direct connection to any of the events that occured during this period of history. But I am human. I am part of the human race. I think it’s important to re-visit places such as these so that tragedies such as these will not happen again.
