“I share this feeling. When I am at Auschwitz I start looking at the world and at my own life. I remind myself of what’s important, which is so easy to forget. In the kingdom of death, you can find the meaning of life. At the biggest cemetery in the world I know what i live for.”
In the Auschwitz reading, the author explains how they created a museum and they want to preserve the authenticity of the past. It just shows you how important history is and how we need to learn about it in order to not repeat our mistakes. I chose a picture of my grandma, (she is on the far left in the white dress) with her siblings. It was taken in New york, it wasn’t too long before they left Italy. They worked so hard for our family today, they built a home, settled in New Jersey, and worked for the rest of their lives to give their children what they need. It is amazing to see museums that shows what people went through to have their family be where they are today. It is just sad to see the victims of the Auschwitz to go through the pain and the suffer at their hands, it is not fair that they went through that. And museums are created to teach us to not repeat history, and it is so important that a similar event like the holocaust does not happen.
