Barbed Wire of Birkenau
27 January marked 65 years of the liberation of Auschwitz concentration camp, museum of horror and destruction, not only Jews, but also Gypsies, homosexuals, communists and thinkers among other groups. I visited twice and it has had a big impact on me. There's always something to make you stop and think. For me it is a symbol, an icon of what happened there, and that is their fences. Electrified in his day, it separated hell and death from life. The thicker the walls, the harder it must be to be inside. A thin wire like those means to me the greatest of the horrors committed by man.
