My Grandma is right...

everyone should visit Auschwitz.

We visited both Auschwitz I and Auschwitz II - the scale of Auschwitz II-Birkenau is incomprehensible. It is hard to believe the Nazi regime existed within the lifetime of our grandparents. It would be an easier pill to swallow had these atrocities been committed millennia ago but they are within living memory, and ought to be recounted to every generation.
