31 PL - Auschwitz Birkenau (1979)

Brief Description

"The fortified walls, barbed wire, platforms, barracks, gallows, gas chambers and cremation ovens show the conditions within which the Nazi genocide took place in the former concentration and extermination camp of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest in the Third Reich. According to historical investigations, 1.5 million people, among them a great number of Jews, were systematically starved, tortured and murdered in this camp, the symbol of humanity's cruelty to its fellow human beings in the 20th century."

"这里壁垒森 严,四周电网密布,设有哨所看台、绞形架、毒气杀人室和焚尸炉,展现了纳粹德国在原奥斯维辛—比克瑙集中营即第三帝国最大的灭绝营中执行种族灭绝政策的状 况。历史调查显示,有150万人(其中绝大部分是犹太人)在此被饿死、惨遭严刑拷打和杀戳。奥斯维辛是20世纪人类对其同类进行残酷虐杀的见证。"
