It was not my first time, and even through each subsequent time never gets easier, I learn something invaluable each and every visit. I have the utmost respect for the tour guides, who choose every day to relive the horrors of the camp as they bring a new group of visitors through the grounds. The first time I visited, I learned that most guides have a personal connection to the camp and although they find their jobs heartbreakingly difficult, they believe this is the best way to keep their relatives’ memories alive.
