Among the thousands of Jewish people who died at Auschwitz there were many other victims of the Nazzi brutality, the Polish people, catholics,gypsies, religious folk and other nationals
These rail tracks continued from the gate of Auschwitz Camp II at Birkenau and splitted in two directions, going to two different Gas Chambers previously located at far end of the photo. The Gas Chambers were destroyed by the Germans prior to liberation of the Camp.
Photo was taken from outside the Auschwitz Camp 1. The red-brick building on the right of the photo is part of the Auschwitz Camp while the building on the left is its Administration building. Note they are separated by a 2-layered fence with a watch tower which can be seen in the middle of the photo, on the left side, with a red roof.
I went on a trip to Auschwitz in August this year (on my birthday!). Looking at pictures and watching films gives you no idea of the enormity of it all. Not my happiest birthday but one which I'll will remember above most of the others.
