Getting Caught Up and Krakow

Well I have to say keeping up with a 60+ year old man should sound easy but if that man is the "The Pope" John Daigle it is not! He has the energy of a teenager and I hope to be that robust at his age.

Above are some photos from the square which was recently redone and is beautiful. Below is the performance hall where plays and musical performances as done, Oskar plays here tomorrow.

We left yesterday morning for Krakow and stopped at Auschwitz and Birkenau and to say it was sobering is an understatement. I learned a great deal and saw things that will be etched in my brain forever. Below are pictures from our visit. When we went in the Poland building we actually found two Maciaszek's my unlce was actually named Boleslaw so it was very erie to see his name.

Seeing the train entrance to Birkenau was surreal as I remember it so vividly from Schindler's List.

When we arrived at Krakow it was night were able to see the square which is massive and beautiful. Here are some pictures of the square at night.

The next morning we woke up and went to the Castle which was beyond belief the architecture was amazing here are a few shots of the outside and in.

After this we met up with Wojeich a local pastor and historian who gave as a tour and it was great he really shared some insights we would not have got otherwise. Below is a few pics from our insiders tour.

Finally, we ended the tour with a trip on a high note when Wojeich surprised me with a little taste of home! Very Cool.

Hey Brian, visited all those sites and your right, when you see what men can do when God is taken out of our society it is appalling. The only thing that changes men is Christ transforming their hearts . God bless you and all you do. Tell the family hello for me!
