Rose McGowanActress Rose McGowan fears she'll always be haunted by a recent trip to Nazi concentration camp Auschwitz in Poland, insisting the memories of the gas chambers where Jews were mercilessly killed during the Holocaust have left her scarred for life.

The Grindhouse star took in the infamous Birkenau camp during a recent European vacation and admits it took all her nerve to get through the guided tour.

She tells Black Book magazine, "I truly think, had I heard a German accent anywhere in my vicinity, I would have lunged at them and killed them. There was a point, when I came across the room filled with all the babies' shoes, where it took everything in me not to fall to the floor and start screaming like a madman."

"By the time I hit the gas chambers, I never wanted to stop screaming."
