For me, learning about the Holocaust and seeing the Holocaust sites are two different concepts. In some regard, learning and reading allows you to have a sense of self-fulfillment that you understand what you read, but when you visually encounter these atrocities, this all changes…I expected to only learn, but we did so much more. We commemorated, we remembered, and we celebrated the lives of those who perished in the Holocaust. We prayed, we broke bread with total strangers, and by the end, it was a truly close-knit community.
