Since I was very little I've been hearing stories about the holocaust. These were not stories that a friend of a friend told me. These were my family stories. My grandmother used to tell me about the times she was separated from my grandpa, not knowing if he was alive. Whenever I wouldn't eat she would bring up stories about starvation in the labor camp she spent years of her youth. The holocaust has always been present in my mind making me appreciate the life that I have and fear the possibility of something similar happening again.
A couple months back, Telemundo invited me to their show Que Noche! and as a way to give me a special gift, they gave me the opportunity to visit Poland and attend The March Of The Living which goes from Auschwitz to Birkenau, the most known death camp. This trip is something I never wanted to do, I thought it was going to be to hard to handle for me emotionally. After facing so many of my fears I stopped asking the question what's the worst that could happen? and I started asking what's the best that could happen? and the answer to this question made me say yes to Telemundo's gift and travel with my husband to Poland.
The feeling of being there is unlike any other feeling, something words cannot describe. I would highly suggest any human being on this planet to visit the concentration camps in Poland because we should all be witnesses of what the Nazis did to humanity and make our best to never forget and never allow for something like this to happen again, never again.
