Bucket List Item

October 01, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

I used the term 'bucket list' on my home page introduction.  We all have one, even if its not written down - there are lists of things we would all like to do in our "3 score year and 10".  For years I have wanted to visit the Nazi concentration camps in Poland - I think this is because my generation still has a direct connection with WWII through parents or grandparents who either lived through it or served in the armed forces during the 1939-45 war.

Many of you will have seen the movie "The boy in the striped pyjamas" & watching that reinforced my resolve to go and see the 'death camps' for myself.  It may have been a morbid fascination but having been now, I really think that everyone should see this at least once, if only to remind ourselves what we are capable of.

There are many images of Auschwitz & Birkenau in the google archives but I would like to share mine with you - this is my personal collection & I hope that you can 'feel' some of the atmosphere via the black & white method which I decided to record them in.

Maybe sometime you will get the opportunity to go and see them for yourself....but in the meantime go and look at my Krakow 2014 gallery
