Auschwitz, Poland by Eleanor Killner

Auschwitz, Poland

At the age of 18 I applied through school to visit Auschwitz as part of my history IB course, I was in Poland for 24 hours and then returned home, and I personally think it's an experience everyone should have. I was reluctant at first to take pictures as it is such a sensitive topic, however I also think the memory of the Holocaust should be kept alive and for me the use of visuals is the most effective and impacting way of achieving this. This photo was taken on the outskirts of the first camp and it translates as "Attention, high voltage, will cause death!"
