"... and we entered a new hell through a gate ..."

By bliba  

"... and we entered a new hell through a gate ..." (Jósef Scislo,)

Even the Germans called this camp "Mordhausen" because of the high number of people who died there. But the quarry alone increased mortality enormously. It is safe to say that it was an international death camp that included Russians, Spaniards, Czechs, Italians, Yugoslavs, Hungarians, Dutch, Germans and even Englishmen and some American citizens besides Poland ... "

thanks for looking

Heartbreaking! My latest novel (Villa of Secrets) involves Auschwitz. The research, and interviews were soul destroying. It's a wonder anyone survived at all.

The composition and light. The seriouness... And despite his small size in the frame, the man dominates the image.

Not what others had intended...
