In the reconstruction you don’t get the crowding of all the poor souls squeezed together, emaciated and lice ridden. I haven’t been to Dachau but I did visit Auschwitz a few years ago, a sad place where even the birds don’t sing…hopefully in remembering the horrors of the past, we won’t allow this to happen again.

So true. I am not sure I could have handled the original. Too much sorrow. Dachau was billed as a political prisoner camp until later in the war rather than extermination camp. Still, you could feel the ghosts.
