Auschwitz-Birkenau was the largest extermination center created by the Nazis. It has become the symbol of the Holocaust and of willful radical evil in our time.
The album you will see presented here is known as the Auschwitz Album and it is the only surviving visual evidence of the process leading to mass murder at Auschwitz-Birkenau.
In the photos we see the men, women and children step out of the overcrowded train, traumatized and fearful after their horrendous journey. They have no clue that they have just been delivered to a death factory and that few of them will survive.
