Auschwitz Concentration Camp

Posted in History, People, Travel at 10:30 am by Warren Williams

Photos alone can stir the emotions from this sombre day around the Auschwitz concentration camps. The name Auschwitz was the German name given to the hosting town of Oswiecim. Over one million Jews were killed in the gas chambers, with the pesticide Zyklon B. The camps are kept open as a reminder to the world what atrocities were committed, and hopefully never repeated.

    Warren, naturally the atmosphere is uneasy and slightly disturbing. Nevertheless I would say a great set of photos and a good way to witness.

    Warren, thanks for sharing your impressions with us. These bring back many of the memories I have from growing up as a young German trying to uncover the history of my nation.
    I also reached this, as did Alon, through the link on the Auschwitz Memorial facebook page.

    Cheers –
