Memories from Aushwitz and Birkenau

Published April 13th, 2013

This year (2010) I decided to visit Aushwitz & Birkenau - The German Death Camps based in Poland near Krakow. I knew from the beginning that the place would be heartbreaking - but I did not expect such a big impact from the Second World War History. People were dying because of their nationality, sexuality, disability etc. No mercy for children! The visit changed my point of view on the War and human cruelty.

Block 24

Block 24a in Auschwitz - place where many people died in the name of science. Experiments on human bodies were performed in this Block in Aushwitz.

Broken...

I think this one is one of my best photos from Aushwitz and Birkenau - it shows a Broken Dolly which as taken from a Jewish/Polish kid before they went sent to a Gas Chamber for death. Very moving for me..

Life in a bag

One of the Scenes which I remember from that trip was a big hill of luggage with peoples names. Unfortunately they ended up in a gas chamber.
