The camp belongs to one of the largest Nazi concentration and extermination camps, operating between 1940 and 1945, currently treated as a symbolisation of the Holocaust process. The concentration camp was brought to life from 1940 till 1945 not long after Poland was joined by the German Nazis and right away was the central point of massive wipeout of mostly Jews. some other victims came from Republic of Poland, Soviet Republic but also many other areas.
Nazis started to label Polish Oświęcim – Auschwitz and then the surrounding little village Brzezinka as Birkenau. Not less than three million victims are believed to have been assassinated there, mostly in the way of having been gassed.
Other ways of such numerous deaths engaged hunger, transmission of diseases as well as physical strain. Let’s visit Auschwitz Birkenau and contemplate upon those who died there in an unimaginable suffering.
