Photo concentration camp in Auschwitz - Auschwitz II Birkenau

My main post with impressions and useful information about Auschwitz concentration campread the link. And here are photos from the Auschwitz 2 camp or, as it is also called, Auschwitz-Birkenau. Let me remind you, Auschwitz is a Polish city that the Germans re-named Auschwitz during the war. In Auschwitz is a complex of two concentration camps Auschwitz I and Auschwitz II, located a couple of kilometers from each other. Photos Auschwitz 1.

Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp wasbuilt immediately as a death camp, while Auschwitz 1 was more labor. So, they were built in a big way: an area with a huge area, divided into several sectors, 4 crematoriums, combined with gas chambers. The first section was commissioned in 1942, the second in 43-44, the third began to be built in 44, but not finished, the fourth did not have time to start. What would have happened if the war ended later, it’s scary to imagine.

There is much less that you can see with your eyes.(there are no prisoners' things, no exposures), compared to Auschwitz 1, but much more can be “felt” by the legs. To walk around the whole camp, looking at the reconstruction of the barracks, stopping to look at the ruins of blown-up crematoria, or reading the inscriptions on the stands, you need at least two hours, and you will have to walk quite quickly. The scale of the factory for processing people is amazing ... Someone purposefully sat and developed such a complex, whose sole purpose was to destroy as much as possible, cheaper and more efficiently.

In Auschwitz-Birkenau, several woodenbarracks, most are closed to the public. Renovation work continues. Inside, everything is about the same as inside the brick barracks, but I assume that it was even harder to live in them. One heating is worth it, the stoves with long chimneys along the whole room gave very little heat, taking into account the cracks in the walls. Could live in each barrack for 1000 people.

Life hacking 1 - how to buy a good insurance

Choosing insurance is now unrealistically difficult, so to help all travelers, I compile a rating. To do this, I constantly monitor forums, study insurance contracts and use insurance by myself.

Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
