Entrance to Birkenau Extermination Area


This is the entrance to one of the two large extermination areas in Birkenau. During the time of the camp, a fence made of branches surrounded it, blocking the view of the waiting victims. To the right and left of the road is the little wood. If one continues down this road , he will find Krematorium IV to the left, and K-V to the right.To the rear, the road runs between BII and BIII-Mexico.
