On our Humrev project trip to Oswiecim we visited the concentration camps of Birkenau and Auschwitz. When I went in I felt prepared to what I would see, but I wasn’t. We saw personal objects of the people who were in the camps, glasses, clothes and hair too. It was traumatizing and it made me very anxious. The expressions of the other people who were with me started changing when we saw those things ,and I know that my face did too. When the visit finished I felt relieved because I knew that everybody can and has to learn from the things that happened in the past, but after that I feel more sensitive and respectful.
