Learn the history of the largest and most well-known concentration camp across the globe. Auschwitz – Birkenau was built and governed by Nazi Germany during World War II on a territory of occupied Poland, in the city of Oświęcim. When the German forces took over this land in 1939, the first facility constructed under their watch was for detainment of Polish political prisoners.
As a result of an idea which came up in the SS headquarters, on 27th April, 1940 - Heinrich Himmler gave an official order to transform the prison into a network of concentration and extermination camps.
The first mass execution of prisoners took place in September 1941, and shortly afterwards Auschwitz II-Birkenau soon became the main site of the Nazi's “Final Solution to the Jewish Question” during the Holocaust. The exact number of people that were murdered in gas chambers or were starved to death there is unknown but historians estimate that it was at least 1.3 millions of Jews, Poles, Romani, Jehovah’s Witnesses, homosexuals, and tens of thousands of others.
