Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum
On July 2, 1947, the Polish government passed a law establishing a state memorial to the victims of Nazism on the site of the camp. In 1955, an exhibition opened displaying prisoner mug shots; hair, suitcases, and shoes taken from murdered prisoners; canisters of Zyklon B pellets; and other objects related to the killings. UNESCO added the camp to its list of World Heritage Sites in 1979. In 2011, the museum drew 1,400,000 visitors.
Pope John Paul II performed mass over the train tracks leading to the camp on June 7, 1979. In the decades following his visit, controversies erupted over a group of Carmelite nuns founding a convent on the site and erecting a large cross originally used in the pope's mass. Protesters objected to what they saw as Christianization of the site, while others argued that the cross's presence effectively recognized the camp's Catholic victims.
On September 4, 2003, three Israeli Air Force F-15 Eagles performed a fly-over of Auschwitz-Birkenau during a ceremony at the camp below. The flight was led by Major-General Amir Eshel, the son of Holocaust survivors. On January 27, 2015, some 300 Auschwitz survivors and other guests gathered under a giant tent at the entrance to Auschwitz II Birkenau to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the camp's liberation. Attendees included president of the World Jewish Congress Ronald Lauder, film director Steven Spielberg, and world leaders such as Polish president Bronisław Komorowski and King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands. As the number of remaining survivors decreases each year, the attendance at the event is unlikely to be surpassed at future major anniversaries. Commemorations also took place at Yad Vashem in Israel, Theresienstadt concentration camp, and in Berlin and Moscow.
Museum curators note that some visitors try to take artefacts as souvenirs, which is strictly prohibited and usually leads to criminal charges. For example, on June 22, 2015, two British men were convicted of theft for stealing apparel buttons and shards of decorative glass they found on the ground near the area where camp victims' confiscated personal effects were stored. The men, both 17 years old, received probation and were fined £170. Curators said that similar thefts happen once or twice a year.Wikipedia

Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum, Oświeçim and Brzezinka, Poland - 30th January, 2013
Auschwitz concentration camp was a network of concentration and extermination camps built and operated by the Third Reich in Polish areas annexed by Nazi Germany during World War II. It was the largest of the German concentration camps, consisting of Auschwitz I (the Stammlager or base camp); Auschwitz II--Birkenau (the Vernichtungslager or extermination camp); Auschwitz III--Monowitz, also known as Buna--Monowitz (a labor camp); and 45 satellite camps.
Auschwitz had for a long time been a German name for Oświęcim, the town by and around which the camps were located; the name Auschwitz was made the official name again by the Germans after they invaded Poland in September 1939. Birkenau, the German translation of Brzezinka (= birch forest), referred originally to a small Polish village that was destroyed by the Germans to make way for the camp.
Auschwitz II--Birkenau was designated by the Reichsführer-SS Heinrich Himmler, Germany's Minister of the Interior, as the place of the final solution of the Jewish question in Europe. From early 1942 until late 1944, transport trains delivered Jews to the camp's gas chambers from all over German-occupied Europe. The camp's first commandant, Rudolf Höss, testified after the war at the Nuremberg Trials that up to three million people had died there (2.5 million gassed, and 500,000 from disease and starvation). Today the accepted figure is 1.3 million, around 90 percent of them Jewish. Others deported to Auschwitz included 150,000 Poles, 23,000 Roma and Sinti, 15,000 Soviet prisoners of war, some 400 Jehovah's Witnesses and tens of thousands of people of diverse nationalities. Those not killed in the gas chambers died of starvation, forced labor, infectious disease, individual executions, and medical experiments.
On January 27, 1945, Auschwitz was liberated by Soviet troops, a day commemorated around the world as International Holocaust Remembrance Day. In 1947, Poland founded a museum on the site of Auschwitz I and II, which by 2010 had seen 29 million visitors—1,300,000 annually—pass through the iron gates crowned with the infamous motto, Arbeit macht frei (work makes [you] free).
The site of the museum is now known as Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum, it is a memorial and museum in Oświęcim, Poland, which includes the German concentration camps Auschwitz I and Auschwitz II-Birkenau. It is devoted to the memory of the murders in both camps during World War II. The museum performs several tasks, among them research into the Holocaust.
This film shows views around the site of the concentration camp where many original buildings have been both preserved or re-built to demonstrate the true scale of Auschwitz as a concentration camp.

I am not Jewish nor any thing else. I filmed this based on the facts that I was given that are said to be the facts.
Millions of people were murdered at the hands of the Nazi leader Adolf Hitler, its not until you visit this place that one can realize the true extent. Hitler committed suicide just before the end of the war and then the war was over, now as the Nazi era fades into history we have this relic to remind us of the terrible things that took place in the death camps.

Oświęcim (Poland), Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum - #TIPnaTRIP by Dafson
Koncentračný tábor Osvienčim bol počas druhej svetovej vojny nemecký vyhladzovací tábor. Prenasledovaní boli predovšetkým Židia, ale aj Rómovia, Sovietskí zajatci a taktiež mnohí ďalší. Väčšina našla svoju smrť v plynových komorách. História siaha do rokov 1940 až 1945 kedy dochádzalo k masovým popravám. V Osvienčime zahynulo približne 1,5 milióna nevinných ľudí v plynových komorách, v dôsledku vyhladovania alebo ťažkých prác. Konali sa tu aj nehumánne experimenty. Najväčšiu vinu za experimenty nesie Josef Mengele.

THE ONE WHO DOES NOT REMEMBER HISTORY IS BOUND TO LIVE THROUGH IT AGAIN
Final Solution, the Nazi plan to exterminate the Jewish people and other ethnic groups.
The Holocaust, also known as the Shoah, was the World War II genocide of the European Jews. Between 1941 and 1945, across German-occupied Europe, Nazi Germany and its collaborators systematically murdered some six million Jews, around two-thirds of Europe's Jewish population. The murders were carried out in pogroms and mass shootings; by a policy of extermination through labour in concentration camps; and in gas chambers and gas vans in German extermination camps, chiefly Auschwitz, Bełżec, Chełmno, Majdanek, Sobibór, and Treblinka in occupied Poland.
Dokument Auschwitz - podróż do Piekła
W oryginale filmu znajduje się dodatkowy fragment, który w tej wersji się nie znalazł (od 10:12 do 11:17).
Brakujący komentarz lektora:
„W ciągu dwóch lat ponad dwadzieścia tysięcy Polaków zesłanych do AUSCHWITZ poniosło śmierć, ale na ich miejsce przybywało coraz więcej więźniów. W październiku czterdziestego pierwszego roku, dwa kilometry od AUSCHWITZ w BRZEZINCE - niemieckim BIRKENAU – zbudowano drugi znacznie większy obóz. Miał pomieścić radzieckich jeńców wojennych, ale jesienią czterdziestego pierwszego roku w Berlinie podjęto decyzję o rozwiązaniu kwestii żydowskiej, która zmieniła przeznaczenie obozu BIRKENAU i rozsławiła jego nazwę na całym świecie.
W 1941 roku Hitler zaatakował Związek Radziecki. Niemieckie jednostki ruszyły na Moskwę.”

Documentaries From Around The World:
Nazi Germany kept up inhumane imprisonments (German: Konzentrationslager [kɔntsɛntʁaˈtsi̯oːnsˌlaːɡɐ], KZ or KL) all through the domains it controlled. The main Nazi inhumane imprisonments were raised in Germany in March 1933 promptly after Hitler got to be Chancellor and his Nazi Party was given control over the police through Reich Interior Minister Wilhelm Frick and Prussian Acting Interior Minister Hermann Göring. Used to hold and torment political rivals and union coordinators, the camps at first held around 45,000 detainees.
Heinrich Himmler's SS took full control of the police and death camps all through Germany in 1934–35. Himmler extended the part of the camps to holding purported racially undesirable components of German culture, for example, Jews, offenders, gay people, and Romani. The quantity of individuals in camps, which had tumbled to 7,500, became again to 21,000 by the begin of World War II and topped at 715,000 in January 1945.
The inhumane imprisonments were controlled subsequent to 1934 by Concentration Camps Inspectorate which in 1942 was converged into SS-Wirtschafts-Verwaltungshauptamt and were watched by SS-Totenkopfverbände (SS-TV).
Holocaust researchers draw a refinement between inhumane imprisonments (depicted in this article) and elimination camps, which were set up by Nazi Germany for the modern scale mass homicide of Jews in the ghettos and death camp populaces.
The lead editors of the Encyclopedia of Camps and Ghettos, 1933–1945 of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, Geoffrey Megargee and Martin Dean, recorded about 42,500 Nazi ghettos and camps all through Europe, spreading over German-controlled zones from France to Russia and Germany itself, working from 1933 to 1945. They appraise that 15 million to 20 million individuals kicked the bucket or were detained in the locales.
The absolute most infamous slave work camps incorporated a system of subcamps. Gross-Rosen had 100 subcamps, Auschwitz had 44 subcamps, Stutthof had 40 sub-camps set up unexpectedly. Detainees in these subcamps were passing on from starvation, untreated ailment and synopsis executions by the many thousands as of now since the start of war.
Auschwitz Concentration Camp - Documentary
Auschwitz inhumane imprisonment was a system of German Nazi death camps and eradication camps constructed and worked by the Third Reich in Polish territories attached by Nazi Germany amid World War II. It comprised of Auschwitz I (the first camp), Auschwitz II–Birkenau (a mix focus/elimination camp), Auschwitz III–Monowitz (a work camp to staff an IG Farben industrial facility), and 45 satellite camps.
Auschwitz I was initially built to hold Polish political detainees, who started to touch base in May 1940. The main killing of detainees occurred in September 1941, and Auschwitz II–Birkenau went ahead to end up distinctly a noteworthy site of the Nazi Final Solution to the Jewish Question. From mid 1942 until late 1944, transport trains conveyed Jews to the camp's gas chambers from all over German-involved Europe, where they were slaughtered with the pesticide Zyklon B. An expected 1.3 million individuals were sent to the camp, of whom no less than 1.1 million passed on. Around 90 percent of those murdered were Jewish; roughly 1 in 6 Jews slaughtered in the Holocaust kicked the bucket at the camp. Others extradited to Auschwitz included 150,000 Poles, 23,000 Romani and Sinti, 15,000 Soviet detainees of war, 400 Jehovah's Witnesses, and countless others of various nationalities, including an obscure number of gay people. A large number of those not murdered in the gas chambers passed on of starvation, constrained work, irresistible maladies, singular executions, and therapeutic trials.
Over the span of the war, the camp was staffed by 7,000 individuals from the German Schutzstaffel (SS), roughly 12 percent of whom were later indicted atrocities. A few, including camp commandant Rudolf Höss, were executed. The Allied Powers declined to accept early reports of the outrages at the camp, and their inability to bomb the camp or its railroads stays questionable. One hundred forty-four detainees are known to have gotten away from Auschwitz effectively, and on October 7, 1944, two Sonderkommando units—detainees doled out to staff the gas chambers—propelled a brief, unsuccessful uprising.
As Soviet troops moved toward Auschwitz in January 1945, a large portion of its populace was emptied and sent on a demise walk. The detainees staying at the camp were freed on January 27, 1945, a day now recognized as International Holocaust Remembrance Day. In the next decades, survivors, for example, Primo Levi, Viktor Frankl, and Elie Wiesel, composed journals of their encounters in Auschwitz, and the camp turned into a prevailing image of the Holocaust. In 1947, Poland established the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum on the site of Auschwitz I and II, and in 1979, it was named an UNESCO World Heritage Site.
