Visit to Auschwitz-Birkenau, 11th February 2015.

Here are the first two (of three) articles that I have sent to my publishers, the Cardiff Times monthly magazine, for the March 2015 edition. I have been granted permission to share on Facebook and on this Blog, prior to publication in March

The first (A-B_HET_LFA_1), is a broadly factual piece about the Holocaust Educational Trust's Learning From Auschwitz Project, with some editorial of my own. The pics to go with this are the first four attached to this post.

The second article (Through the valley of the shadow of death_Alternative ending_3), is an account of my own response to the day. You should note that my monthly column looks at the world through the prism of being the father or an eight year old girl who has Down Syndrome. The 2nd set of four pictures are associated with this column.

As noted, both the above articles will be published in March 2015.

In April 2015, I shall supply a follow-up article based around the 24th February session in Cardiff where the students from Wales who went to A-B on 11th February will outline their reactions and proposed next steps. .

I have noted which pics are my own and which come via HET/LFA sources.

Feedback is welcomed and I hope that I have avoided any unintended errors of fact. If not, please let me know asap.
