Auschwitz - Birkenau Concentration Camps

... On the tour, you can see empty Zyclon B canisters, piles of shoes of the deceased, piles of eyeglasses, children's toys, clothes, etc. It's horribly depressing but a must-see if you're anywhere near here or any other death camp.

Personally, this is the third death camp I've seen. I was at Dachau, near Munich years ago and at The Killing Fields and Tuol Sleng in Cambodia. I'm amazed at what ...

At the end of a period of time, after visually inspecting the interiors of the chamber through a peep-hole, the guards or prisoners wearing masks would empty out the bodies of the deceased prisoners, and rinse down the chamber.

A few steps from the chamber, and within the ...

A Tour of Auschwitz and the Salt Mine

... at the elevator. Several hair raising whistles blew and peopled piled onto the elevator. 9 on the top elevator, and 9 on the bottom. We must have waited for 3 or 4 groups, and at least 20 minutes, before we got our turn to escape. It was pretty much during this time that our British friends really loosened up. We were all speculating on where we were going, just how small was the elevator, and would we ever get out of the mine. We finally all poured into the elevator with ...

... a memorial to those who perished there. It is also on the list of UNESCO World Heritage sites.

It was a depressing experience, made more so by the gray, raw day. I still can't get my mind around the magnitude of what the Germans did to millions of men, women, and children AND that they did it with their mind-numbing efficiency and detailed record-keeping! I was also saddened by the fact that the Allies knew what was going on in Auschwitz ...
