Description

Auschwitz- Birkenau is the biggest and the most ominous among Nazi extermination camps.  In 1979, it was included in the list of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The camp functioned between 1940 and 1945 near Oświęcim and Brzezinka towns. Auschwitz- Birkenau bears witness to the nightmares of the Holocaust and the Second World War. Historian estimate that as many as 1.5 total million were killed in the camp – Jewish, Polish, Russian, Romani, and many other nationalities.  Most victims died in gas chambers and were later burned in the camp  crematoriums. The camp occupied an area of approximately 190 ha (this figure would change over time) where more than 3000 buildings were erected – barracks, gas chambers, bunkers, earth closets, and many others.  The camp could accommodate over one thousand people at a time.
