End of the Line - Tracks in Birkenau
This is where the tracks end in Birkenau. Behind me were the gaschambers and crematoria. They were destroyed which is why I choose to take the picture facing the gate into Birkenau.
Prisoners who arrived in Birkenau exited the trains right here, to the right of the tracks. Doctors then "selected" those who could live and those who were to go straight into the gas chamber. 70 % off those who arrived in Birkenau were sent straight to the gas chambers.
