Katy Perry took a moment away from her goofy persona to post a heartfelt message on her Instagram after a recent visit to Auschwitz, the former concentration camp in Poland.
Alongside a photo of the camp, Perry wrote, “My heart was heavy today. For ever let this place be a cry of despair and a warning to humanity, where the Nazi murdered about one and a half million men, women and children mainly Jews from various countries of Europe. Auschwitz – Birkenau 1940-1945 ‘The one that does not remember history is bound to live through it again.'”
