Excursion d’une journée à Mauthausen
Il est difficile de décrire un tel voyage comme merveilleux, vu que nous avons trouvé des noms de famille inscrits sur les rôles du camp. Cela dit, notre guide et chauffeur (Fleming) nous a donné de bonnes instructions et des conseils pour tirer le meilleur parti de notre séjour au camping. Le voyage dans le camp a été marqué par l'histoire de Vienne, ainsi que par la perspective de la place de l'Autriche dans l'histoire de la Seconde Guerre mondiale. Le temps passé à Mauthausen était sobre, significatif, mais pas pressé et nous sommes retournés au point de rassemblement à l'heure prévue pour nous rendre dans un bon restaurant. Beaucoup de temps pour manger et réfléchir sur la journée, puis retour à Vienne pour notre logement. Merci Fleming et Alex, vous avez passé une journée mémorable. Traduction par Google.
