With tomorrow a travel and preparation day – today was our day to have fun as tourist. We could not have packed more into the day if we tried!
The day began an hour from Elblang at The Molbrok Castle – the world’s largest castle but was nearly totally destroyed during WW2. Incredibly – they are still doing repair work and you can see pick marks many walls from bullets and mortar.
Our next visit was very sobering – the Suttoth Concentration Camp. Over 65,000 died at this camp – which is incredibly only 1/46th of the number of people who died at Auschwitz. A very dark place but one that is a reminder what happens when we a don’t confront evil forces.
Our final stop was the Baltic Sea port town of G’dansk. WW2 literally began in this Polish town when the Germans took it over. Today it is a beautiful town filled with winding European streets and shops and cathedrals.
Tomorrow we leave for Warsaw!
