When I first decided that I wanted to take part in a study abroad trip I figured that I would travel to another country, explore a new culture, eat some good food and maybe practice some new language skills. I had no idea that I would end up on a trip to France and Poland to study the Holocaust. I have been on many trips in my life, however the depth and emotional experience during this study abroad class surpasses pretty much every other trip. Admittedly during the trip I was not able to show much emotion, that’s just the way I am; however, that did not change the fact that I did absorb the academic side of the course and learned a great deal. There were many things during the trip that stuck out to me, but I will only speak about one.
