One of the tougher aspects of traveling is visiting historical places in which very bad things happened. One such place that the Jessetters have visited was the Mauthausen Concentration Camp in Austria.
The Mauthausen Concentration Camp was one of the largest labor camps during World War II. According to Wiki, up to 320,000 individuals were killed within these walls. It is a very sad, quiet, emotional, and eerie place to be even though it is surrounded by such a gorgeous countryside.
There were many memorials, art, and videos throughout the camp that will keep people busy for awhile.
I believe that it important for people to visit places like this. It is one thing to read about these places or see them on television, but visiting them in person gives an incredible sense of perspective.
