There are many places associated with the Shoah, but it is Auschwitz that has become the main symbol of the Shoah. The concrete location of Auschwitz, with its very different parts Auschwitz 1 and Birkenau, offers a wide range of experiences that nobody misses out on. This place of horror and inhumanity actually existed. This is not FakeNews. This deeply impressive realization the students take with them and  draw consequences for their own responsible actions as human beings and Germans.
