The Gates to Hell


There are probably few places on earth that can be considered as that …

Even though the frame of the picture seems very generic a lot of people will recognise it goosebumps creeping up their back. It is a picture of the Auschwitz II – Birkenau Death Camp shot during a recent visit.

In just a few years between 1 and 1.5 million people were killed in Auschwitz (most of them of jewish faith).

More information on Auschwitz:

It is probably one of the places everyone should visit once in their lifetime – pictures, reports, hollywood movies – they don’t even come close to describe what happened there.
