Learn from history

There are also important sites around the world that show the dark side of history. Concentration camp Auschwitz in Poland is one of the most moving monuments remembering victims of World War 2. Words cannot express what happened here. Another chilling monument can be found at the Killing Fields in Cambodia where horrific cruelties took place not that long ago. Fortunately there are also less sombre monuments, such as the world-famous temple complex packed with history at Angkor Wat.
