Krakow [2]

Another fascinating evening. Joined by four Polish students who are studying about the Holocaust here in Krakow. They were brought here by their professor, Annamaria Orla-Bukovska and by Dr. Jolanta Ambrosewicz-Jacobs, who directs the Holocaust Studies Program at the Jagellonian University.

The conversation was too long and complex to easily summarize especially as we are leaving for our visit to Auschwitz-Birkenau shortly. We are getting an early start in order to avoid some of the "crowds" that get there later in the day. I always find it somewhat surrealistic that we rush to get there early in order to avoid the crowds....

More later.
