Yes, I would like to go back with my family. Maybe this coming year.
We too are thinking of going in the summer, reconnect with the past.
Don't know if he survived the camp or not.

When I visited Poland during my college years, I was surprised that "The Holocaust" was not much of a thing there. It is not part of the Polish national curriculum the way it is in the United States.Conversely, the Poles were adamant that I be educated in how many Poles were murdered by the Nazis to make room for German settlers (1.8 to 2.77 million non-Jewish ethnic Poles). This fact is simply not taught in the United States because it does not serve the interests of those in power here.
But we are not taught that either.
Yeah, what do a couple of million Poles matter? They're white, must be racists, all of them.And the 10 million Russians that died in the war? More racists!
20 million dead Soviets from that war is another figure bandied about.
World War II losses of the Soviet Union from all related causes were about 27,000,000 both civilian and military, although exact figures are disputed. A figure of 20 million was considered official during the Soviet era.
It's just that all the other single groups pale in comparison to 6 million jews.
Chertok has an account of a Red Army soldier being shot for rape of a German woman, having lost both siblings to Wehrmacht atrocities, but Kulick shot him anyway in the name of military order.

Found out that I had a relative in Dachau
One thing that stuck with me was that even the Nazis had a pretty strict code of honor, and German soldiers were shot for the rape of French women after that invasion.
