This is a pretty iconic shot from one of the most ghastly places on the planet – Birkenau (Auschwitz II). Auschwitz I had a strangely college campus feel about it – but not here. Everything about it was unpleasant – and we were temporary visitors. If the former tenants could see out of their cattle cars.. this would be the last view they got before entering the jaws of death.
