Today we headed for Warsaw, on the was we stopped at Alcherwitz Memorial to pay our respects and educate ourselves on what had happened in Europe during WW2. it was nothing short of devastating, seeing where people had been kept, tortured and killed because of the Nazi parties and Europes policies. The memorial is doing an amazing job of raising peoples awareness of what happened so that it does not happen again.
After 2 hours at the Memorial, we headed into Warsaw where we set up camp and reflected on the day. The next day we went for a tour of the City, seeing the Choppin statue, A prison that has been used to detain people and ship them to concentration camps during the war and a Jewish uprising memorial. We then stopped off in the old town square. In the afternoon we headed back to camp but then headed back into the old square as a group for dinner. It was beautifully lit up and had street performers and people having wedding photos everywhere. There was a great atmosphere and all the buildings were really beautiful, considering most of the city had to be rebuilt after the war.
