The Lessons of Auschwitz

June 22
By Kathi Diamant and KPBS Commentaries

I learned about the Holocaust, concentration camps, and death camps in eighth grade last year, but what they taught us did not bring the emotions felt when I was at that camp. & I knew they had small beds, little food, and horrible conditions, but to see the beds stacked three high and very close together was even worse than I imagined. & When we went into the "bathroom" you saw a long row of "toilets" that were just holes one next to another on a cement slab about one and half feet off of the ground. & To see this was appalling and to try to imagine what it was like to be there with them was dreadful. Schools can try to teach you this but unless you see it, unless you are there, you cannot get a feeling of how they lived. &
