A year ago, I had the opportunity to visit Poland and the concentration camps. The day trip to Auschwitz has stayed with me even today, especially that uneasy feeling in my stomach. Before I went on this trip, I did not know much about my family history, but this experience provided so much more than a history lesson. I truly felt connected to the past.
After this experience, I was inspired to write a script based on my family ties to Poland, and my relatives who had survived the Holocaust.
