(Slide Show / Order All / Regular View / 2 Columns / Thumbnails)
After walking out of Auschwitz, approximately 300 of us (mostly descendants of Nazi perpetrators from Germany) spread out to our respective sections of the Magen David placed over Poland. I'm going to a city called Radkowice.

Here, Peter Loth at the gathering spot where our team will be walking through 7 villages where the Nazis took no prisoners

The youthful had "power teams" that covered the longest distances of our path covering Poland. Some of them were doing about 25 miles a day! The group I was with covered about 12 miles on this day.
