Dachau Tree Buds.jpgThere are times when you are overwhelmed with the beauty that surrounds us but then you realize that in the details of the place something unthinkable and horrible happened. Having just finished my walk/tour of the concentration camp at Dachau in silence, I looked up and saw this beautiful tree so full of new life and beauty right outside of the gates. It seemed so unfair that this tree would have bloomed when such death and destruction of the human spirit and soul was happening so close and not so long ago.
