Auschwitz Birkenau

Part of a series of photographs from Auschwitz and Auschwitz Birkenau, this photo was taken at the end of the railway line. I was part of a visiting group and was selected to read an excerpt of a poem in front of 70 other people. It was incredibly moving as well as daunting but taken on my Minolta 35mm Film Camera I think this image reflects the eery and sombre mood of the moment while also showing the need for peace and unity moving on from such a tragic event in history.
