    Last time we went to Munich my wife wanted to go. I told her I didn't want to get all sad on my fun vacation. I told her we would go next time. I didn't really know I'd be going back 3 years later. :owned:

    Now she wants to go again. We're also going to Normandy (my choice) and I know that I'm going to get choked up like a huge faggot but at least D-Day was a victory for the allies. I dont know if I can handle a concentration camp. Also for some reason, whenever I see shit about concentration camps, I feel guilty even though I had nothing to do with it and I'm not even a kraut. I feel the same way about slavery.

    The kicker is, my wife is jewish. Why the fuck would she want to go there? Seems like a horrible day to me. I think our days in Munich would be better spent drinking in the beer halls and strip clubs.

    She probably wants to see firsthand how her ancestors were treated as less than human and put to death by the Krauts.

    I'm lookin at pictures on trip advisor and I'm getting sick. Why would she want to see that?

    Maybe I should just go and laugh at everything and then push her into the gas chamber as a goof.

    It actually kinda small, not much left.....but......

    It is VERY depressing and kids really don't have the ability to understand what its all about, IMO.

    By-the-by.....

    The Germans use the outside park area as a picnic spot.

    True story.

    I don't see what we have to gain from it. There's nothing there to learn that she can't learn on the internet. Why do we have to go? I'm going to lose it. Like a huge queer. :bigcry:

    The Normandy graveyard/invasion site was far more moving for me.

    I lost both grandpa's in WW II.

    The French treat the area with the utmost of respect.

    Normandy would be cool to see... especially Pointe du Hoc.

    I wish it wasn't winter. I know they sunbathe nude in the English Garden in the summer. They probably do it there too. At least that would give me some incentive to go the the most horrific place in the history of mankind.

    The area around is still full of huge creaters from the off shore guns blasting away and they have all kinds of areas marked off because of live shells in the ground.

    Place is awesome :c
