The road to the Red Cross Concentration Camp is caked in frozen mud etched with tire tracks and cracking puddles. A dog jogs ahead to dig holes in the camps yard. The barbed-wire fence lies in a decrepit heap next to the ticket office branded with a faded swastika and, in thick capital letters, WACHE SS.
Also, theres also a high school next door.
Many tourists ask, Oh, is this also part of the camp? No, its just a school, explains our guide, Aleksandra Zdravkovic. She works at the tourism office of Nis, a quiet city of 190,000 in southern Serbia, and occasionally offers free walking tours. Since only my wife and I showed up to brave the sub-zero temperatures on this early January morning, we scored a private tour, which includes the camp.
I ask Zdravkovic why communists built so many schools next to former camps Jasenovac, in Croatia, is the same way. I do not know for sure, she replied, but I think it was to show children: Look what they did to us!

Democrats never paid for war crimes, they embraced Marxism to avoid it and to prepare for more war crimes.
The devil works that way: either you get punished by God or you make me your god. Political correctness and political parties are the refuge of scoundrels.
They won't. They think they're gods. No good can come of such delusion.
They may “think they are God”, but God knows they are not.
And We the People by and large know they are not too. 1/2 of we the people will end the boxcar crap quick.

Nis, the birthplace of Constantine
All I have in my genealogy is his birthdate, but that's probably because I didn't study the man. However, I will change that, and also add his birthplace.
[snip] Constantine was acclaimed as emperor by the army at Eboracum (modern-day York) after his father’s death in 306 AD. [/snip]
