I center for political prisoners. During that

I recently took a interesting virtual tour of Auschwitz. also known as Auschwitz-Birkenau, opened in 1940 and was the largest of the Nazi concentration and death camps. Located in southern Poland, Auschwitz initially served as a detention center for political prisoners. During that tour I discovered many things that had an impact in me. For example I discovered that in this concentration camp  it evolved into a network of camps where Jewish people and other perceived enemies of the Nazi state were exterminated, often in gas chambers, or used as slave labor. Some prisoners were also subjected to barbaric medical experiments led by a person called Josef Mengele. During World War 11 which was from 1939-1945 more than 1 million people lost their lives. While in Block 10 I learned that it was where women and men were used as experimental subjects for the German doctors. The experiments in Block 10 ranged from skin testing for reaction to relatively gentle substances to giving phenol injections to the heart for immediate dissection. Also It was located in man’s camp. These experiments were mostly conducted for women. Sometimes to please the”elite” officers, the Germans would house prostitutes in block 10. It was here were the main doctors would work Also while in the Children’s Barracks I discovered that in December 1942, children and their mothers were kept as prisoners in the barracks. They were deported by Germans. Many children and mothers were brought after the outbreak of the warsaw uprising. Children from Zamosc region (majority of them were murdered) were sent to the camp along with adults. Jewish children began to be deported with their families to Auschwitz in 1942. The majority of the children were sent to the gas chambers after selection.   Additionally while exploring Roll-Call Square I I identified one of the many torments of life in the concentration camp was the daily roll-call. Prisoners had to stand to attention during roll- calls held on the central square. When new buildings were constructed, prisoners were lined up on the camp streets in front of the blocks, and lasted several hours. The main purpose of the roll-call-square, was to count the prisoners and confirm changes in the camp population associated with arrival of new transports. Many roll calls, held in unfavorable weather- pouring rain, thunderstorm, freezing or high temperatures-claimed numerous victims. Plus while analyzing ¨Arbeit Macht Frei” Gate I studied that it was placed at the entrance of several Nazi German concentration camps and ghettos. The gate was made from pipes being used to expand the camps running-water network. It had an upside down Letter B, that aimed at the duplicity of the slogan above the gate. They treated the property there as spoils, of war. In December it was stolen and cut up into pieces (inscription) orders from Swedish Neo-Nazi It was then repaired 48 hours later. After seeing and exploring through the tour of Auschwitz concentration camp and learning that it was a network of German Nazi concentration camps and extermination camps built and operated by the Third Reich in Polish areas annexed by Nazi Germany during World War II I now understand the terrible impact it had to people. Towards end of World War II there were about 10 million people in the Nazi labor and concentration camps, forced labor units, and prisoner of war camps. Many innocent children worked under dangerous conditions as well as sick and pregnant women. It impacts me in all the innocent people that died and suffered in this place, they should have not died. The germans were to harmful on jewish people.
