AUSCHWITZ - BIRKENAU

 

Auschwitz-Birkenau is a name of the concentration and extermination camp complex built nearby the town of Oswiecim (Auschwitz in German) - about 70 km from Krakow, during the German occupation of Poland. The camp was first established in 1940 as a place interning Polish intellectuals and resistance movement members, but later became a centre of deportations and extermination of people from all over Europe - mainly Jews, but also Soviet prisoners of war, Gypsies, Italians, Czechs, citizens of Yugoslavia, France, Austria...
Today the former Nazi-camp is the world's best known cemetery and a place dedicated to the memory of those who lost their life there. In 1979 the site was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List.
