Birkenau Crematorium Ruins

birkenau poland crematoria gas chamber ruins

Birkenau, Poland

Today’s photo is a rather grim one. These are the ruins of the gas chamber and crematorium at the Birkenau Concentration Camp (Auschwitz II). They were demolished in January 1945 by Nazis before retreating. A guard tower can be seen in the distance. Over a million people were killed here; more than 90% were Jewish.
