The grim Auschwitz Birkenau will forever be remembered as a place of death for millions of innocent people, including women, children, and men. A visit to this place will help you understand the enormity of human tragedy during the Second World War.
The Nazi camp was established in 1941 when the first prisoners were placed there. During the 4 years of its activity, the camp was significantly expanded to include the gas chambers and the labor camp. Prisoners living in real hell on earth were deprived of their human rights and dignity, suffered violence, and underwent dangerous medical experiments.
