near Oświęcim, Województwo małopolskie (Polska)

I have visited the Auschwitz II - Birkenau camp, located at three kilometers from "Auschwitz I" camp in the Polish town called Oswiecim.
It was a very interesting visit from the historical point of view.

I have added waypoints with images, for those not having the possibility to visit the place, to see a bit as it was here where many people died unjustly .... we know the history very well.

To view it in detail, it takes about two hours, admission is free and there is a bus that takes us from the "Auschwitz I" camp up to this every 30 ".
I suggest to visit first the Auschwitz I before Auschwitz II-Birkenau.
Important to enter the information office and purchase the field guide what explains each area quite well and has marked the map with the locations of buildings.



He visitado el campo de concentración Auschwitz II - Birkenau, que se encuentra a tres kilómetros del campo Auschwitz I en la ciudad polaca llamada Oswiecim.
Ha sido una visita muy interesante desde el punto de vista histórico.

He ido añadiendo los way points con imágenes, para los que no tengan la posibilidad de poder visitarlo, puedan ver un poco como era este lugar donde murieron injustamente tantas personas.... la historia ya la sabemos bien.
Para poder verla con detalle, se requiere entre una y dos horas, la entrada es gratuita y hay un autobús que nos lleva del campo Auschwitz I hasta este cada 30".
Os aconsejo visitar el Auschswitz-I antes que el Auschwitz II-Birkenau.

Importante al entrar en la oficina de información, comprar la guía del campo, explica bastante bien cada zona y dispone de su mapa señalizado.
