Many people shed tears at Dachau, and I did also. I truly had the sense that this place was haunted by the dead, and a gloom with which I can compare no other situation came over me.When you walk through the gate with the "Arbeit macht frei" sign, you have arrived in hell on earth. As horrifying as the visit was, a visit here is important to any student of history. I was glad to have come in winter, as it attenuated the awful odors of the ovens. Having seen this concentration camp, I never wish to visit another, but I value that I cathartically saw it for myself. Observe, but do not linger.
