Europe Vacation: Mauthausen Concentration Camp – Part 2

Europe Vacation: Mauthausen Concentration Camp

Europe Vacation: Mauthausen Concentration Camp

In stark contrast to the buildings of Mauthausen Concentration camp, were the rest of the grounds.  At one point these had been covered with concentration barracks, but now the area contained a large graveyard, and memorial statues.  We could also observe the remainder of the quarry where so many had lost their lives.  This part of the camp seemed strangely serence compared to the harsh realities of the museum.  Part of what was interesting about this experience was that for the only time on the trip almost everyone walked by themselves in silence, and when we left the bus was quiet for a long time.

I wanted to reflect this serenity on the page and so choose greens to bring the observer back to a state of peace while viewing the book.
