Katy Perry Visits Auschwitz: ‘My Heart Was Heavy Today’

TIME

While in between shows on her European tour, Katy Perry paid a visit to concentration camp Auschwitz-Birkenau in Poland.

The “Dark Horse” singer, 30, stopped by the World War II landmark site Wednesday, which she acknowledged in an Instagram photo of the prisoner barracks.

“My heart was heavy today,” she captioned the image.

“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,” she wrote.

She ended the caption with a quote from Spanish-American writer George Santayana: “The one that does not remember history is bound to live through it again.”
