In Mauthausen you may see the former KZ ( Konzentrationslager ) of the Nazis !
Mauthausen is about 20 Km east of Linz, and the former KZ was recently restored and is open for visitors.
You will need strong nerves to see all this, as already when entering the first court ( on top of my pic ) you may get an idea of the atmosphere of the KZ.
The ovens were rather small in Mauthausen, as the prisoners had to work so very hard carrying big stones up the " stairs of death " ( on the left of my pic ), that most of them were killed by the hard work and the treatment by the guards...
Mauthausen of today is a lovely village with great and fancy architecture - see my last 2 pictures !
