Auschwitz – Berkenau, Poland
In October 2016 I visited the Auschwitz – Berkenau concentration camps in Poland where 1.1 million human beings were killed by other human beings.
After many years of reading and watching about what happened there, I finally got to see it with my own eyes and camera.
I hope that my photography conveys the respect, sorrow and sadness I feel about this place and what happened there.
It wasn’t until I was back in England editing these photographs that it sunk in that I had actually been there.
It is impossible to put into words the emotion that this place and its history can evoke.
My guide at Auschwitz – Berkenau, whose uncle was there, said these poignant words:
“Everyone should come here to remind us that not so many years ago human beings did such things to other human beings.”
