    Gruesome,, mans inhumanity to man.What is awful is that people have short memories and atrocities continue

    • You’re absolutely right, Dawn. We went round that place, all choked up, totally unable to understand how that kind of thing could go on. Then you suddenly remember – it still does.

    Oh my.

  3. No need for words, images speak for themselves. We will never learn sadly…

    Wow – Just looking at those pictures is a hard thing to do. How can people every at to the point of being so inhumane to other people. Sad thing is – how many other times has this happened since WWII? You think of places like Rwanda, Cambodia and the Bulkans and realize it will probably happen yet again. Very sad.

    • Going round the place was quite hard too – everybody you saw seemed to be very quiet and contemplative. And it’s impossible to understand how these things still go on isn’t it?

    A picture paints a thousand words. A stark reminder of a past that should never be forgotten

    • It doesn’t look busy on our photos, but it actually was (children too) – both car parks were overflowing, with vehicles all down the road. We found that fact in itself a bit hopeful really, that plenty of people do see the place as an important place to visit because, as you say, these things shouldn’t be brushed under the carpet or forgotten.

  6. Ooh – very grim! Mind you, I find animal experimentation just as bad a human experimentation and would ban the lot! There are plenty of other techniques nowadays without causing suffering.
