    ... bodies were taken out of the gas chambers and pushed to pits, where they were burned in the open. Between January, 1942, and March, 1943, 175,000 Jews were gassed to death here, of whom 105,000 were killed from January to March, 1943.

    Up to this point, Auschwitz accounted for only 11% of the victims of the 'Final Solution'. However, in August, 1942, planning began for the construction of 4 large-scale gassing facilities. It appears from the plans, that ...

    ... caused the Germans to need to bring in a couple of motorcycles, running them at full throttle to attempt to drown out the last sounds of the dying prisoners.

    About 2/3rd of the way down the chamber, in the roof, is a black-framed opening in the ceiling, with a wooden lid covering the hatch. This would be the location, where the SS executioner would climb up the earthen berm, and after wearing protective gear, open the hatch in the ceiling, ...

    ... could go there on my own and book an official tour on the spot, which would be with exactly the same tour guide as the organised tour. Plus, doing it on my own was cheaper. So I got a public bus to the concentration camps, which are located just next to the town of Oświęcim (the Germans modified the name to 'Auschwitz' when they invaded). The 60km westward journey took about 2 hours. Before the actual tour, we were shown a 15 minute ...

    ... 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 ...

    ... many still had hope that the Nazis could not possibly intend to kill so many. The gas chambers at Birkenau were much bigger and could hold 1,000 people and there were 2 that I saw. The Nazis tried to destroy them to hide their crime as the Soviet troops were near.

    We saw the women's barracks which 5 to 10 slept on a hard wood rack 3 high. There was much disease, many suffered from diaharea and defecated in their rack ...
