Auschwitz - Death revisited

... closed and Zyklon B crystals rained down. Above ground the massive crematoria had multiple rows of cremation ovens. Bodies would be brought up and fed into them by prisoner work details called ‘Sonderkommandoes’ who themselves were living on borrowed time.

The disembarking prisoners would be made to walk past the inspecting physician, a role that is believed to have been carried out by the infamous Dr Josef Mengele, for a while. Women, ...

Auschwitz - open with caution

... herd about the medical experiments, where children as young as 4 days old where treated like guinea pigs. Ridiculous experiments, such as trying to change the colour of their victims eyes. We then came to where thousands of belongings have been displayed, taken from those of the gased Jews.

There is also a feeling of peace and calm, it is hard to articulate in words. I will leave this here, as I don't want to go ...

... Another thing we did not know, is that another camp was built very close to Auschwitz called Birkenau, which was built when Auschwitz was deemed not big enough for the numbers of people being dropped off there. The gas chambers and crematoriums in this camp were built for mass slaughter – 2,000 people could be killed at any one time. We visited this camp also, which was included in the main tour. When the Nazis realized that they were not going to win the war, they tried ...
