Auschwitz was a German Nazi concentration camp which existed in the years 1940–1945. Its first prisoners were Poles. From 1942 the vast majority of those sent to Auschwitz were Jews. The account for the camp activities is shocking.
Out according to minimum calculations in KL Auschwitz deported and recorded 1.300.000 people, the 1.100.000 of them were Jews, 150.000 were Poles, 23.000 were Roma, 15.000 were Soviet prisoners of war and 25.000 from various other nationalities. Finally, 1.1 million of them died at Auschwitz, mainly by the method of the gas chambers and the 90% of the victims were Jews.
We are not talking about just numbers here, it is about human lives, but nevertheless world doesn’t change. Peoples still hate each other, expansionary wars still take part in all over the world because of religions, money and political interests and the feeling of terror appears everywhere.
Auschwitz-Birkenau stills be there as a witness of human brutality. Either like a cemetery, either like a place of memory, a monument or like a research and education center on those who were killed, Auschwitz-Birkenau stills be there to warn us about totalitarian regimes, stills be there to never happen again.
