School trip to Germany

I am going on a school trip next year for 5 days, we go to Auschwitz, the Berlin wall, the factory from schnidlers list etc. I love history in school, i find it very interesting and am really looking forward to this trip. My dad showed me this artical in a newspaper about Ausvitz and going there. I didn't know what to expect before but i think it will be a lot more emotional and moving that i anticipated. As it wasn't just blood thirsty machete wielded killing, it is almost worse. It was so methodical and cold and clever how they managed to kill thousands. In this article it talks about before children went in to the 'showers' to be gassed they were told to tie there shoe laces together so they wouldn't get separated for when they came out, instead this was so that they would be easier to sell as they would be together. I talked to my teacher about the trip and i asked her if anyone cries, she said 'It's not that kind of sad, its more of a shock and realism rather than crying sad'. 
           I am still looking forward to this trip I think its one of those things/places that you have to see before you die. I will do a post about the trip in April.
