Terezín by Sasha Lyubashevsky


Today was cool but not exactly the most fun. We spent all day in terezin learning about the living conditions in one of the “nicest” Jewish ghettos during WWII. Most of the Jews living there at the time were famous or prominent people, decorated veterans, and many elderly. One of the weirdest things was to see the drawings children made during their time there which was as cool as it was sad. 
We then had a tour of the camp and had a brief lunch break. As sad as it was, some muskrats helped lighten the mood a bit for everyone. We also saw the crematorium which was probably the worst thing on the trip so far. But one of the best things was an antique shop along the way. It was filled old stuff and I wish I could spend all day just looking through it. But in the end I bought a really cute set of cups for my mom (I wanted to buy a sword for myself, but the transportation could get tricky). 
We finished the day by eating dinner, getting ice cream, and heading home.
