Birkenau gate

The gate to Auschwitz

Auschwitz concentration camp sometimes called Auschwitz Birkenau or simply just Auschwitz was a Nazi Concentration Camp during World War II.It was built in Poland and thousands of Jews died there either in the gas chambers or through human experimentation often conducted by Josef Mengele. When it was liberated by the Soviets, the Nazi's tried to destroy it but they failed and as of today it still stands and is now a tourist attraction.

Auschwitz is also the subject of a documentary film called Auschwitz:The Nazis and the "Final Solution"
