Auschwitz now serves as a museum and memorial, which seeks to commemorate the lives of all of the individuals who lost their lives at Auschwitz.
It’s estimated that approximately 1.1 million individuals were executed by the Nazis at the Auschwitz Concentration Camp and if you take a tour of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum, you’ll have the opportunity to learn about the brutal conditions which Auschwitz’ prisoners were subjected to.
