We start our walk after passing through entrance..unaware of the full horrors that await..
The main gate is on the left,the kitchens to the right..
Looking down toward crematoria/gas chamber area..
About 6,000 volts travelled through this vile barbed wire fence
Looking at this electric fence made the hairs on my neck stand up..
At 13 feet in height the double fence was a formidable barrier
Infamous entrance to the camp
Many pour souls ended their miserable lives by running on to this fence..
Hideous what man did to fellow man
New inmates were told the only way out is through the crematoria chimney..
Arbeit Macht Frei....the only freedom achieved by the harsh working conditions were death..
This sign appeared on other concentration camps gates..
A band played every time a group of slaves were forced out to work all hours
Kitchens to the left
One can only imagine how poor unfortunate souls felt upon entering these gates..
Kitchen to the left
Block 24...said to have been used as a brothel for specially rewarded prisoners
Read this and weep
Just inside the camp now
