Auschwitz has become a primary symbol of the Holocaust. It was a network of concentration and extermination camps built and operated by the Third Reich in Polish areas annexed by Nazi Germany during World War II. It is a proof of cruel terror and unimaginable genocide. Original fences, wooden watchtowers and railway ramps have been preserved. The museum exhibition contains original documents, suitcases, shoes and other belongings of murdered prisoners.
