Never Forget!

Belzec, Poland…the third largest death camp for Jews in Poland. Another sobering sight, yet an extremely important one to pay witness to! Only miles from my father’s childhood home, this chilling place was blown up by the Nazis in their attempt to destroy evidence of their atrocities. Today from that rubble, a chilling statement has risen including a museum and monument to pay respect to the staggering amount of Jews from allover Poland that were exterminated here!

I heard of several relatives who hid Jews to protect them from this awful fate…now seeing how this was practically on their doorstep, it sheds more light on those scary stories and that horrific time!
