TuesInspiration ... without.

Competition winner...a 9 year old girl.

This I call "FREEDOM".

This "SOLITARY"

!994 ... before I owned a digital camera.
We visited Kracow ... Auschwitz was a 45 minute drive away.
We spent two days inside the camp... barely able to converse with one another.

The first three paintings were done by Polish schoolchildren. We stayed overnight at the newly opened centre ... in fact we were their very first visitors.
A "county painting competition" had been held ... after making a donation we were asked to choose several of the paintings to bring home.
Here are three ...the first painting was done by a nine year old girl...she won.
They were asked to paint a picture of how they imagined the inmates of the camp to be.

davids It certainly is one of the most evocative places I have visited... I visited in the middle of winter and the bleak, snowy weather seemed to accentuate the melancholy.

CHOSSID Very evocative post. I unfortunately know so much, I feel like I have been there already... That first painting is good as art, and I can see why it won, but I daresay the inmates look quite a bit more robust than they really were...

BTW a lot of the same hatred which fueled these camps is again rearing its ugly head! Have we really learned from the past?

Thanks for posting
