“This is why it hurts the way it hurts. You have too many words in your head. There are too many ways to describe the way you feel. You will never have the luxury of a dull ache. You must suffer through the intricacy of feeling too much.”

Schutzstaffel (SS) uniform
Once again, I will sing the praises of the German Historical Museum (next time I'm in Berlin I will spend an entire day roaming around, there was so much I didn't get to see). The museum did not shy away from covering those dark days in Germany's history. They had a rather good exhibition which covered the entire period of time.
Concentration camp uniform
As you walk around the exhibition you will feel sad. Looking at the official Nazi uniforms and the concentration camp uniforms will sadden your heart. But this is history and we must not shy away but learn from it.
Below you will find some shots from the exhibition (click on the image for a larger view).

Another find from the German Historical Museum, was this painting. I saw it an instantly thought it looked like the cover of a regency romance novel. Unfortunately, I forget who this was a painting of!
By the way, if you're looking for some romance novels, here are a couple of my reviews.
