Dachau in Germany, a horrible reminder of what
humans are capable of doing to each other.


More Wordless Wednesday here.

Chilling!

The clarity of the barbed wires in the picture sort of shows you the bleakness of it all isn't it?

I read about Dachau in The Book Thief, and I immediately thought of the book when I came across this photo. It's amazing that such a blue sky witnessed such suffering...

Vaishnavi - I can't imagine those wire being the walls of my world.

Darlyn - Moments from The Book Thief were rolling around in my head while I was at Dachau. That's such a powerful book and one of my favorites.

Whoa! I think I posted a different version of the same picture last week! How weird!

She - I saw your photo last week and it reminded me so much of my own trip. That's what made me get out the photos and review them!
