Auschwitz and "Tannisho" - Listening to Shinran's Words in Poland (7)

Auschwitz was too intense an experience...

I didn't feel like doing anything for a while.

No, perhaps it is more correct to say that nothing was done.

However, there was something that suddenly crossed my mind that seemed to have emptied out.

"If you have a good karma, you should behave in any way you choose.

Yes. It was the words of "Tannisho," which I have previously introduced in an article on Yad Vashem, the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Jerusalem.

Entering Poland and Walking around Krakow - Old Town and Jewish Quarter Poland Part 1

Krakow is a city in southern Poland, and its old town, centered on St. Mary's Church, is known as a compact and very tourist-friendly city.

Krakow flourished as the capital of the Kingdom of Poland from the middle of the 11th century until the end of the 16th century, and was a cultural center along with Prague and Vienna.

And while Warsaw, the capital of Poland, is compared to Tokyo, this Krakow is compared to Kyoto.

While Warsaw was destroyed by the Nazis in World War II, Krakow miraculously escaped destruction. As a result, the old townscape from the Middle Ages still remains today.
