This morning I visited Auschwitz 1 and Birkenau.

Remains of huts at Birkenau - the site is 2km square.
The chimneys are the "heating system" virtually never used.

Cattle trucks arrived from all over Europe and unloaded here.
80% of arrivals were then killed, 20% kept to work in nearby factories.
Average life expectancy was then 3 months.

It is a horrible place.
