This is the entrance of the Dachau concentration camp, located outside of Munich, Germany. I recently spent nearly six hours at this memorial site to learn, see, and feel the history. This is one of the few photos that I would ever post of what I witnessed. It was extremely disturbing, and heartbreaking.

After spending so many years learning about the Holocaust in middle school and high school, I have never heard of this man until now. Nicholas Winton was an English stockbroker who after learning that there were no rescue initiatives focused on children, worked to rescue nearly 669 children through personal efforts. Mr. Winton was a phenomenal human being and a true hero. Rest in peace.

This man has inspired all whom have listened. I read his book "Night" in English my sophomore year of high school. His story, sadly, gave me nightmares of wondering "what makes me so much better than him, for the cruel things he had to see?" But it's a good book, don't get me wrong, the story WILL leave an imprint on you.

When I was 14 years old my family and I went to the Holocaust Museum in Washington D.C. As a member of the Jewish faith I was flabbergasted on how much stories, photos, personal accounts on what happened during the Holocaust. I learned more than what you usually learn in school and I still go there from time to time to learn even new stories, see new photos, and listen to some more personal accounts of the terrible days in Nazi Europe.
