Auschwitz, Birkenau, Majdanek, Dachau....and yet it's the Olympics site in Munich that's still creeping me out. I wonder if it's because of Vengeance.

Or if its because "Olympics" is a real, fathomable, human-being, willing-participant event and the other stuff is too outrageous to genuinely feel for.

in a way.
but not only cuz of that.

cuz majdanek was outrageous and genuinely felt. VERY genuinely felt.

olympics was something else. im not sure if it's cuz i went myself. or cuz i got lost and wandered around the entire area lookin for that elusive memorial, nervous cuz i had a train to catch. i dunno if its cuz i was the only (noticeable) jew in the whole area, unlike any of the 'camps'.


its just so stark.

(i must explore it further)
