Dachau

First published June 21 2011

During our little vacation in Bavaria with the kids, we stopped in Dachau. I thought it was important for my children to understand the atrocity of what Nazi Germans did to Jewish and other people during WWII. Dauchau official website

My children tend to be very sensitive to bad energy. So I rarely take them to places where I know will have energies that will disturb them.

this was taken in one of the barrack. It was filled with prisoner all the way to the top. And you could see pictures of what it looked like during the war.

Barbwire that surrounded the camp and the barracks area.

Gas chamber. This area was the most painful place to see. They had pictures all over and Rafael who is 9, asked to leave because it made him unhappy. I was tearing up.

We walked back to the entry/exit of the camp slowly and tried to make our children that even though it isn’t a place for everyone to visit. That it was important to understand what humans can do to other’s just because they are different, because they don’t think the same way of the government. Because they ask question. I told them that they HAVE to ASK question. They HAVE to know what was to make what will be a better place! And hopefully this will never happen again.
