    This building is just amazing. The rooms were big and there were lots of common areas. The internet connection was good. The breakfast was excellent and the kitchen was well stocked. I would highly recommend this place to anyone

    ... army barracks, but when the Germans invaded Poland, they took it over as a concentration camp. Over 1,300,000 people, most of them Jews, were gassed or died at these camps.
