After a 24 hour travel day ending yesterday, it is back to work. It was a great trip. We flew into Krakow, Poland, and then took a bus ride to the village of Skoczow, Poland (Google map), where we spent a week working in a camp. Krakow is the former capital of Poland (until 1596) and was left largely untouched in WWII. It’s amazing historic square is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Some of the landmarks of the downtown square are St. Mary’s Basilica (Wikipedia), Cloth Hall (Wikipedia) and Wawel Castle (Wikipedia).
On Saturday, we toured Auschwitz and Birkenau (Auschwitz II) concentration and extermination camps, about 50 km west of Krakow in the city of O?wi?cim, Poland. It is still hard to wrap my mind around what happened there and the other smaller camps.
I need a vacation to rest from the trip, but somewhere there are Bankruptcy cases, mail and e-mails to read. Pictures of the trip are here.
