Out of the 1.3 million people which the SS and police deported, there were over 1.1 million men, women and children who lost their lives in this horrifying place.
This infamous concentration camp operated from May 1940 in the suburbs of Oswiecim (Auschwitz in German) until January 1945, when it was liberated by the 1st Ukranian Front of the Soviet Union’s Red Army.
The tall barbed wire fences surrounding the block cells which were intended to house the suffering prisoners. The watchtowers and the wooden barracks, along with the gallows and gas chambers show the terrifying image and demonstrate the enormous scale and depravity of Nazi Germany.
It was the largest concentration camp of the II World War.
