We celebrated Christmas 2018 in our beautiful Airbnb in Weimar, Germany. James got some gifts and we watched a few silly Christmas movies. We bought a little Conifer tree at the Blumen shop for our Christmas tree. Since it was a live tree in a pot with dirt, we hated to just leave it behind.
There is a concentration camp near Weimar called Buchenwald. We visited Buchenwald a few days before Christmas. We have been to one other concentration camp before – Theresienstadt in the Czech Republic. But we hadn’t been to a concentration camp with a crematorium and Buchenwald has one. It was one of the hardest things to walk through and I don’t want to do it again.
Chris came up with the idea to go back to Buchenwald on Christmas Day and plant our little Christmas tree. There is a large memorial at the camp and after walking around the memorial, we found the perfect place to plant our little Conifer Christmas tree.
