Pictures of the camp in Auschwitz - Auschwitz I

The main post with useful information and my impressions about the visit concentration camps AuschwitzI already wrote. Here, on the contrary, there will be only photographs from the Auschwitz I.

Let me remind you, Auschwitz is a Polish city,who in the war the Germans called Auschwitz. It houses a complex of two concentration camps Auschwitz I and Auschwitz II, located a couple of kilometers apart (visited separately). Photos from Auschwitz II camp You can also see the link.

Auschwitz 1 was built in 1940 on the basis offormer barracks, so those who came here were somewhat luckier than those who landed in the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp (Auschwitz 2). Here the barracks are more stout, brick, two-story, with heating more or less decent.

Barracks, or more correctly blocks, stand in 3 rows. The first row is for the most part closed to the public, the second row is the expositions of different countries, the third row is the reconstruction of various rooms (or maybe just a reconstruction of the whole block). By the way, I looked at the exposition of Russia, Poland, Slovakia, Israel and some other country, so in my opinion the Russian exposition was the best among them. There both documents are old, and there are a lot of things, and there are many photographs (electronically on the screens), and the projector was saturated. The rest is quite simple.

In Auschwitz 1 there was one crematorium converted fromvegetable store. After testing the Cyclone B gas in public, the building was redesigned and a gas chamber appeared in it. The camera functioned from 41 to 42 years old, and after that it was converted into an air-raid shelter. Now everything is reconstructed from the original parts.

It’s not necessary to go to the exposition of the countries, I thinkAll this (or much) can be found on the Internet. Much more interesting (if I may say so, because the “interesting” is not quite relevant word in this case) is the third row of blocks. They contain prisoners' belongings, and there one can see firsthand the conditions under which people lived and died ... In particular, block 10 and 11 - the block of suicide bombers. Here are cameras, both ordinary and standing, the wall around which people were shot, rooms for various purposes.

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.
