very minor thing, but “to each his own” is closer, and an english phrase, too. But it means the same essentially.
Young kids today really have no fucking idea how terrible of a moment this was in our history. Really think about what happened behind these gates. So horrific it’s hard to even process.

Wrong translation. Jedem das seine roughly means to each what he prefers
My mother used to tell me this sometimes.
But she is not a nazi
I have been there on a tour… It’s an experience. So depressing yet enlightening. The stories you hear of prisoners helping each other through suffering are inspiring and humbling.
I was there about a week ago and that gate hits you like a punch to the gut. Imagining my relatives seeing those words made me so physically ill I don’t even know how to describe it.

Buchenwald fun fact: The camp ended up in the Soviet occupation zone and they kept it running! From 1945 to 1950, the camp was used by the Soviet occupation authorities as an internment camp for those they considered to be anti-communist or opponents to their regime in eastern Germany.
