Trip Report A grim visit in beautiful Alsace

Jump to last reply

This week I was in my grandmother's ancestral village in the Vosges mountains, and I decided that I was due to a visit of one of the sights only 25 kilometers away, just over the pass on the Alsatian side of the mountains.

It is the Struthof-Natzweiler (Natzwiller) Nazi death camp, the only such place to have been located on French soil. My first visit was when I was 7 years old and the war had ended fewer than 20 years earlier. The place is still as stark as it was back then, but it serves as a permanent reminder of how lucky my family was.

Here is the photo report that I made: http://tinyurl.com/struthof
