Auschwitz

Today, we were visiting Auschwitz, the biggest concentracion camp and a big part of german history.



In nearly every building there is some kind of sub-museum where you can see an exhibition to a special topic like the holocaust of hungarian or polish jews. Already after the first building I felt pretty sick because everything was so bad and disgusting and unhuman I just wasn't sure how to deal with it.


It started with a place they put the dead people they shot when they wanted to break out of the camp as a warning to the others. All the people they burned (after shooting them or killing them in the gas chamber) were even reused by taking the ashes and dunged the fields where the camp inhabitants were working on with it. It was like fully sustainable in a really really sick way.


People who were getting sick were sorted out by the probability that they would be able to work again. They just treated people who would work again, the rest was just killed. They even performed experiments on women to see if they could make them infertile.


This wall is the wall were the people got shot. There were so many ways to die in those camps. They say about 1,2 million people were killed in Auschwitz in total.

And I asked myself: If the war had taken another few years, if they had been successful to kill all the jews and gypsies and so on - who would have been next?
