The Birkenau camp also helped to put into perspective the enormous scale of what happened here - it is a huge site containing numerous blocks in which people were made to sleep and live in terrible conditions. In total, about 1.3 million people were killed at these camps between 1940 and 1945, 90 per cent of them Jews, most from Hungary and Poland.

We didn't get to spend enough time at the castle and being the end of our tour, it was very busy by the time we got there with long queues for tickets.
