Another from Auschwitz, this time the largest of the 3 camps.

Most of Auschwitz's killing, torture, and medical experiments took place in Auschwitz II: Birkenau. This section was built nearly two miles from the main camp, Auschwitz I. Large transports of Jews were brought from all over Europe in cattle cars and unloaded upon the dreaded ramp where SS officials made selections. Loved ones were parted, families were split. Some were destined for Birkenau's gas chambers and one of its four crematoria.

Those not selected to die immediately in the gas chambers were sent to a particular Block within the camp. These men and women worked long hours knowing that their families had just been murdered. Many of these prisoners died from overwork, hunger, sickness,

Auschwitz II was an ever evolving and ever growing death camp. An estimated 1.1 million people were murdered here.

This 4 shot stich was taken from outside the camp looking through the rows of barbed wire fences.

Temperatures hit -16 degrees C the day I visited, and I was well dressed. Its is hard to imagine what sort of Hellish conditions the prisoners here faced evreyday.

Thanks for looking, Alan
