Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial & Museum
Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial & Museum is the former Nazi concentration and extermination camp. The museum exhibition contains original documents, suitcases, shoes and other belongings of murdered prisoners. Original fences, wooden watchtowers and railway ramps have been preserved. The first and oldest was the so-called 'main camp', later also known as 'Auschwitz I', which was established on the grounds and in the buildings of prewar Polish barracks. The number of its prisoners fluctuated around 15,000, sometimes rising above 20,000.
The second part was the Birkenau camp, known as 'Auschwitz II'. This was the largest part of the Auschwitz complex. It functioned as a war camp, extermination camp and place from where people were sent to labour in Nazi Germany. The Nazis began building the camp in 1941 on the site of Brzezinka village, three kilometers away from Oswiecim. The Polish civilian population was evicted and their houses were confiscated and demolished. The largest part of the apparatus of mass extermination was built in Birkenau. More than 90 percent of the prisoners, mostly Jews, were killed there. Birkenau was mostly destroyed by the retreating Germans.

Former Nazi command bunkers "Anlage Mitte" in Konewka
One of the German Army’s war command centres – “Anlage Mitte”, built in 1941. It is located in the close vicinity of Spala and Tomaszow Mazowiecki. The largest object of this bunker complex is a ferroconcrete railroad shelter. It is 380-metre long and was intended for sheltering a train of the staff officers. Nowadays the shelter contains exhibitions illustrating the history of this site, miniatures of German shelters and baggage trains, military equipment, guns and vehicles from World War II. The complex also includes other ferroconcrete shelters for: generator, boiler room, water-pumping room, well, water cooler and fuel tank. You can walk through the 80-metre underground tunnel connecting the train shelter with the generator shelter. “Anlage Mitte” is one of the biggest examples of military architecture in Poland.
