“Why would you want to visit Auschwitz?” our friend asked us. We went because we couldn’t help but go. We went to remember how prejudice explodes into hate and butchery. And because we went with a camera, we prayed that we would have perfect weather for the shoot. It was perfect. A dismal, unrelentingly gray day to match the heavy spirit that lingers like a pall over this complex of death. Marking the 60th Anniversary of the Liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, Meridian Magazine takes you there in a never-to-be-forgotten photographic essay.
