"Birkenau Death Camp..." Brzezinka Things to Do Tip by coceng

Brzezinka Things to Do: 20 reviews and 20 photos


These are the photo by me that I took around Birkenau Death Camp, near the Auschwitz Camp.
It is 175 hectares & this camp had over 300 prison barracks, 4 huge gas chambers complete with a crematorium.
Each gas chamber could accomodate 2000 people & there were electric lifts to raise the bodies to the ovens.
This camp could hold 200,000 inmates at a time...

Here you can see the distance between the barracks to the electric fences...Not that far because some people did escape their death at the camp, we were told by the tour guide. The same girl guide who were with us from The Auschwitz camp...
