Photographer's Note

27 January was International Holocaust Remembrance Day. This duo of Auschwitz Death Camps is a sobering and depressing place and this is an apt upload, with a message that can never be repeated often enough. More so with the generally poor quality of world leaders today, it's a timely reminder of what happens when people cave in to the wishes of the ruling politicians without question.

This is Auschwitz II camp looking back towards the smaller but equally sinister Auschwitz I camp with its 'work makes free' sign. I've loaded it as a workshop.

I had another shot without people and the 'frei' part with a blue sky bg, but the shot with people in it is in hindsight a stronger one.
