Artist's description:

This image was shot at the remains of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp in Poland. This is, of course, the most infamous of the Nazi's death camps that were used during WWII to carry out their genocide. I noticed these three men, walking together along the tracks inside the main gate of Birkenau, dressed completely in black and of an age that they could well have been camp inmates during the war. One of them stopped to place a rose on the tracks, they bowed their heads for a moment, and then began to walk away. I was not close enough to hear them speak, and I did not want to intrude on their privacy, so I can only guess as to who they were or what they may have been doing there, but in this image they symbolize, for me, every survivor who will "never forget".
