From the archives: Originally uploaded to this theme in Dec. 2006 in a previous jpgmag life, this picture gained many favorites and comments.
Taken in that December from the watch tower at Auschwitz-Birkenau, Poland. It was around 4pm and the setting sun caught the window, for a few minutes there seemed to be a little peace in this place of such an evil past.
