I’ve arrived in Warsaw, and just finished my first day of work here–I miss you all! I’ve been thinking a lot about the theme of our class and our work together–it is interesting to think about our conversations about New York as I am in a city that is so totally different–and far away.
Today, we arrived in Warsaw in the early afternoon and then went from the airport immediately to a myriad of sites–I am surprised by how “cosmopolitan” it is–I’ve seen an H & M, Pizza Hut, and a few McDonald’s.
Today we went to the Gensha Cemetery–the largest Jewish cemetery in the world with tombstones dating back several centuries. The image I am choosing to share is one of the memorial for Janusz Korczak, the pen name of Henryk Goldszmit, a writer, educator, and pediatrician who opted to refuse freedom for himself, and instead accompany the orphans from his orphanage to Treblinka.
I think that the way I will approach blogging from afar will be to write something short, and share one image.
