Today my post is sad and I can say terrible. Auschwitz it is the worst place on our planet where million people from Europe lost their lives. As a Pole I was twice there ( I took my daughter too,) and I think it is enough in my life. It is worth visiting this place because you can understand how important is peace and tolerance.. This place makes me depressed......
