Places whose names send shivers down your spine by their mere mention [View all]

This is somewhat out of nowhere, but I'm just curious as to other people's input.

There are places where a tragic or horrific occurance or occurances have taken place where all it takes is the mere mention of the place to make you shiver just out of the facts associated with it.


Just a few off the top of my head:

Danziger Bridge
Abu Gahrib
Columbine
Sandy Hook
Auschwitz
