When people think of Auschwitz, they think of the building you see below. This is the infamous gate into what is known as Auschwitz II or Birkenau. This part of the camp is located 3 kilometers outside of town and away from the camp that I have talked about in my previous posts. Once we completed our guided tour at the Auschwitz I location, we took a short bus ride out to Birkenau. The bus drops off just outside the gate building, and the guided tour continues from there.
