Situated near the River Elbe, Hamburg is Europe’s second largest port.
A great way to catch a view of the city is a cruise on the River Elbe…such picturesque houses!!
While there I encountered what became my favourite memory of the place – the dessert Rote Grütze …simply awesome! Try it.
I have often wanted to know more about the suffering of the Jews & atrocities committed against them during the Nazi regime. It was therefore only natural to want to see a real concentration camp if that were ever possible.
During my visit to Germany this became a reality & I was able to visit an old concentration camp which is now a well preserved musuem. It stands as a cold reminder of one of man’s worst crimes against humanity.
Located outside Berlin is the Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp in Oranienburg. A former Nazi camp, it serves as a grim reminder of the extent of man’s depravities…& the suffering endured by millions of Jews as a result.
For those interested in reading more on this topic, I would recommend the following books – The Diary of Anne Frank, Man’s Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl & The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom.
Thank God for freedom!
Came by an amazing mix of Bougainvillea in varied hues recently – what a vibrant burst of colour…
I once captured these four strays in the evening after a mild drizzle. Arranged in perfect order, each occupying a square & in the same pose. It was a rare sight to behold.
Our cat Mia having a sound nap. Regular hobby this with the feline of the species – regardless of whether Freshly Pressed is happening or not.
We went past this most interesting chair in Geneva. I’m sure it must have been even more fun to walk through…
