    Who are the guys in the photo, are they all forum members? I know the one in the white shirt is you Carl, but who are the rest?? The guy in the shades (centre) looks like he's a Bond villian. I bet he lives in a hollowed out volcano.......















    ....somewhere in Norfolk.
    Hi Ned, the guy in the centre is definitely one not to be trusted, it is indeed me, from my Norfolk inverted volcano!! The other forum member present was Matt (far left) who was on top form, especially when we needed rescuing by using his I-phones sat-nav. Leon.

    Lol Right here we go Auschwitz-II, Birkenau

    ...and Carl taking us through the barracks.....

    Pictured below, as follows:

    1-2) Two views of the main gate building.
    3) The end of the railway tracks, located near the crematoria sector.
    4) The unloading ramp - site of the mass transports of Hungarian Jews that arrived at Birkenau.
    5-6) Two views of watchtowers.
    7) An internal view of one of the reconstructed barracks located within the grounds of the quarantine camp (Lager BIIa)
    8) Camp road.
    9) Section of fencing with both period and modern replacement barbed wire visible.
    10) A section of the vast burning pit located aside Krematoria-V. This was used to dispose of corpses when the ovens failed due to overworking.

    These railroad cars we were shown were somewhat outside the main area of the Auschwitz-Birkenau site. Known as the "Judenrampe" (the Jewish platform), this was the location where earlier transports to Auschwitz-Birkenau arrived - i.e. cca Spring 1942-Spring 1944.

    Many thanks for posting these images Matt, some fine photography that displays the main sites of our tour. I have edited the captions as to augment the imagery.
