"Birkenau Death Camp..." Brzezinka Favorite Tip by coceng

Brzezinka General: 20 reviews and 20 photos

 
 

Fondest memory: 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...

Just for the memory of being there, I asked somebody to take a photo of me. Looking at the photo now, of course it doesn't look like a death camp right ? Like I was in the middle of a field...but it WAS The Death Field !
