EVERY HUMAN NEEDS TO VISIT AUSCHWITZ
A HISTORY OF HORROR
GETTING TO AUSCHWITZ – BIRKENAU

WHAT TO SEE AT AUSCHWITZ
The area known as Auschwitz-Birkenau is actually a series of camps right next to each other. The two most famous and most important to see are Auschwitz I and Auschwitz II-Birkenau. Each camp will take at least 90 minutes, and it could be longer if you want some personal reflection time.
