... be in an hour, so I thought I stuck it out. 45 minutes later I was at the ticket window where I paid about $15 for required tour fee and was allocated to a group with a tour guide.

The vast proportion of those killed at the camps were Jewish, but many poles were sent to the camps, as were gypsies, homosexuals, and anyone who ...
