    ... more than 100,000 pairs of shoes, 12,000 kitchen utensils, 3,800 suitcases and 350 striped camp garments.

    The first Nazi base in Auschwitz, named after the nearby Silesian town of Oświęcim, was set up in May 1940, 37 miles west of Krakow. Now known as Auschwitz I, the site covered 40 square kilometres.

    In January 1942, the Nazi party decided to roll out the “Final Solution”. Camps dedicated solely to the extermination of Jews had been ...

    ... full blast, but I guess I could deal with that. The return trip took over 2 hours. Oh and I wanted a salad for dinner but couldn't find one so I took the next best thing, a kebab wrap that had lettuce, tomato and cucumber.

    ... out the cans of Zyklon B, and then cover the opening. The gas would take about 20 minutes to take effect, and slowly the frantic attempts of the dying prisoners would ebb away. 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 ...

    Auschwitz & Birkenau

    ... but hair... that's part of a person. It was horrifying.

    The whole experience was depressing, but worthwhile. For me it was not as confronting as some people say, as you pretty much know the basics of what occurred there. But to stand in the place where these atrocities were committed is a very sobering experience nonetheless. A chance to visit an important site of 20th century history, and pay your respects to those that suffered and died ...
