Many people instantly know the name ‘Auschwitz’ and the horror it brought upon over 1.3 million people, including 252000 children. The concentration camp was responsible for the death of over 1.1 million innocent people, most of them jews, as well as Romani, Soviet, Polish and Jehovah’s witnesses. Shockingly 1 in 6 people killed in the holocaust perished there. It was an evil place, people like Joseph Mengelen carried out barbaric medical ‘experiments’ and many other members of the SS indiscriminately beat, murdered and raped prisoners.
