Against War & Fascism

Usually, when I travel by car, I like to avoid the highways in order to discover the hinterlands. On this journey, I got lost in the small villages along the border. I stopped in one of the villages for a coffee and a bite before crossing the border to Germany.

I connected my smartphone to Wi-Fi, and then searched the name of the town “Braunau am Inn” just to check if there
was any interesting sights to visit. I then discovered that it was the birthplace of Adolf Hitler.
I located his home to find that it has been converted into a nursery for disabled children. At the door stood a memorial stone with the inscription: “For Peace, Freedom and Democracy. Never Again Fascism. Millions of Dead Remind [us].”
