This was my first experience overseas, so naturally I was nervous. It was overwhelming to think that we were going to Paris and Krakow where our major objective was to learn more about the Holocaust and those involved. In Paris there were not as many distinct reminders about what Holocaust victims went through, but in Krakow, it was all but obvious, especially at Auschwitz-Birkenau. I was not sure how to feel about Auschwitz. Was there a right and a wrong way to feel? I knew a place with such an awful and graphic history deserved the utmost respect for those who suffered and died there.
