(From the picture):
"August 1944. After the liberation, I left Grabowka and returned to Mniszek. None of my family was there. I went to Maidanek to search for signs of them. I looked through the piles of worn shoes but they all looked the same. After seeing the showers and gas chambers, the crematorium, and the giant cabbages growing on human ashes, I joined the Polish and Russian armies stationed there."
