Transcript of Auschwitz
Victims of Auschwitz
Upon doing research, I couldn't find the exact number of prisoners or the amount of deaths that occurred in the Auschwitz camp. Numbers go from 1.1 million to even 4 million people. Some people were never even registered as prisoners. These were people who were deemed unable to do labor, such as pregnant women, seniors, and children. They were told to undress and shower in the disguised gas chambers. But this wasn't the only way that they punished people. Other ways that people died were from starvation, forced labor, shooting squads, disease, being hung, death by block 11 (standing cells), planned executions, and medical experiments.
A Little About Auschwitz
History of Auschwitz
Auschwitz was originally founded by Germans in 1270, is now known by its Polish name, Oswiecim. Auschwitz was pretty much invisible before 1989. Now, it is considered the symbol for The Holocaust. It is the site of the greatest mass murder of all time. It was a complex of an extermination camp, a labor camp, a transit camp, and a concentration camp, all rolled up into one camp.

Auschwitz Concentration and Extermination Camps
Auschwitz was known to have the biggest concentration and death camps. All prisoners were examined, and if deemed unable to work hard slave labor, they ordered them to take showers. They were then sent to the disguised gas chambers where they would be exposed to Zyklon-B poison gas, or hydrogen cyanide.
