POSTED BY MOTLORG ON JUNE 15, 2017

For two weeks, I alongside several other Beverly students took part in the 2017 March of the Living program (MOTL) with the Los Angeles Delegation. The trip was a total of two weeks. In the first week, as a group, we traveled to Warsaw, Krakow and Lublin, visiting numerous concentration camps.

Dear Child, You were torn from your mother’s arms before you could speak. You were shot and killed by animals. You were stripped of your innocence. You were taken from this world far before you should have been. Dear Child, Know that this was not your fault.

After witnessing the brutality of concentration camps, the sadness of memorials and the vibrant atmosphere of Warsaw, it was time to experience the beauty and history of Kraków on our last day in Poland.
