A Grueling Recall of History
Reading through the historical trauma is only the slightest of introductions to stepping on the physical grounds of the largest concentration camps. Auschwitz became one of Europe's best connecting ports via rail giving rise to what the Natzi's believed to be a supreme location. Pictured here, is a natzi watchtower in which the camp observed strict surveillance over those suffering starvation, torture, and disease. Behind is the electrical wired fence that punished those who attempted a brave escape. Further on the grounds, appear settlements that cramped millions of desperate families and evidence of destruction as the natzi's attempted to destroy evidence of their work. Though chilling, this walk through histories most shameful act depicts a past reality and remains an important part of tourist visits to Poland.
