Just a 5 minute drive from Auschwitz I, Auschwitz II-Birkenau was the largest of the camps that made up the Auschwitz complex. Ninety percent of the victims of Auschwitz died at Birkenau. It operated for three years, with construction begun in 1941.
This concludes my series of photos on my visit to Auschwitz. I have tried to be sensitive in my choice of photos. For now, I'm afraid I need to put my blog on a break while I prepare to weather Hurricane Irma, which is currently bearing down on the state of Florida. Hopefully it won't be too bad by the time it makes its way to me, but hurricanes are extremely unpredictable, which is why they are so scary!
