    The first thing I noticed about this picture was the bouquet of flowers on the ground. It's kind of eery seeing something that you know was involved in something as horrible as it was.

    I agree, my father went with me to see it, and we didn't say anything, I took the photos and left. It left us both feeling a little sad.

    Just seeing the photo of it compels me to reflect on what was and what could have been. We should never forget.

    Almost impossible to imagine that as many as 100-200 were stuffed into these tiny boxcars like cattle.......

    All for the 1000 year Reich!

    A small part of one of the greatest tragedies mankind has ever known, a heart breaking sight.

    Thanks for posting Scott.
