Notes on returning from Auschwitz 12/1/96

Everything But The Girl - Carl Craig / A Wonderful Live

I have just returned from 12 days in Poland. I went as a photographer and participant in an interfaith meditation retreat at Auschwitz organized by Roshi Bernard Glassman and his new Zen Peacemaker Order. During American Thanksgiving week a group of 150 people - Jews, Christians, Buddhists, and Sufi Muslims - gathered for meditation and discussion, to bear witness to what happened at Auschwitz 50 years ago, and to listen for the ways in which those events echo in our lives today.
