SITES AROUND ‘AUSCHWITZ-1’
As a continuation of the recent ‘Beyond the Birkenau’ material, I invite you to join my walking tour around the ‘Auschwitz-1’ or ‘Stammlager (main camp). These locations are rarely recognized by the tourist groups, while they are on the short 200 meters’ distance from the camp fence. These unobvious places can give a deeper understanding of the Auschwitz nature and its dramatic bureaucratic functioning.
I have devoted almost a month to this detailed article with the history of each site and building, dozens of archival and present photos, quotes from the books on the issue. It would be the most precious part to get your feedback. Ask questions, share your stories, add value. And travel your own history.
