Holocaust Museums vs Concentration Camps

I'm in my first holocaust museum since I visited the camps in Poland & Germany, two summers ago.
It's strange.
I'm going backwards.
I keep thinking about the bunkers, the tracks, the shoes, the fences, the grass, the chimneys, the walls, the buildings, the stones.
Here, I am seeing signs, photographs, lists, documents, films.
Yad VaShem is on my mind so strongly.

I'll write more later b'ezrat hashem....

I know what you mean..
When I was in Poland I snuck into Birkenau with a few friends at 1am..
Boy did I feel it..

That's insane. I can't believe you guys did that. Why "snuck"? Is it locked or something?
