There is a particular feeling that I experienced when you visit the slave cottages in the South. It is the same feeling I had when I visited the ruins of the concentration camp at Dachau. First it is eerie, then it is sad, then comes the recognition of the human lives that lived this reality, then finally gratitude that the site has been preserved for everyone to remember what occurred and never let it happen again.
