Violence of Auschwitz and Birkenau : Krakow, Poland

 

14 Sept. My visit to Krakow, Poland. I was a witness though after 70+ years) to the atrocities of ONE man’s power-greed. 

Hitler was democratically elected in 1933. But that was the murder of democracy and murder of his voters and the innocents.

Auschwitz camp 1. (At the end you will find the biggest death camp of the Nazi regime – Birkenau, near Auschwitz in Krakow, where gas chambers were constructed to create a death factory.

ImageImage

Image

Image

 Though the tourist season is over, tens of thousands of people still visit to experience the pathos of this violence and holocaust

Image

 

 

 

 

Image

 

‘Work makes you free’, said Hitler, and forced those innocents whom he brought to this concentration camp into hard, merciless labour.

Whatever the victims carried, in the hope of living “elsewhere” cooking, and doing their own things in their “new place”

Their clothes from their homes

Remains of the victim soldiers

suitcases, they carried when they left their homes – hundreds of thousands of suitcases

victims Children’s toys

Image

Image

Millions of shoes

Image

Getting ready for the day’s hard labour

Image

That’s how they turned out to be in a few months of arrival in concentration camps

Image

Tattooed numbers were their identities

Image

ImageImage

The stripped clothes, too!

Image

The guard post, lest the victims escape!

Image

ImageImage

Scores of blocks herd the victims

Multi-decker beds on concentration camps

Image

In the last few years, the authorities have permitted visitors to place some flowers at the shooting-place, and pray for them

Image

Image

Image

the “mad doctor’s” experimenting laboratory next to the shooting place; glasses were covered with wooden panels to stop victims from knowing what’s happening to their camp-friends (death & deathly experiment)

Tens of thousands of headphones are not enough of tourists!

Image

Birkenau, the second Death Camp

Image

Image

Image

The entire camp was constructed by the prisoners themselves, to accommodate themselves till their death, and their tormentors till they tormented. 

Image

Image

Image

But this camp functioned for a short time, since by then the Allied forced defeated Hitler

Image

 

Image

Image

There are two sets of train tracks to bring hundreds of thousands of prisoner to be gassed. Probably over a thousand acres of death fields

Image

Image

Image

Image

 

Probably a coach like this was used to “separate” those meriting death immediately those who can work and die later!
