Thanks for sharing these. Coincidentally, I was there at Auschwitz last Friday. Though I went fully prepared and aware of it's history, the impact of being there and seeing it was in no way diminished. I didn't take many photos, as I felt more inclined to try and take it all in, but I did get some at Birkenau. I am definitely glad to have been able to visit, I've always felt it to be important. My friends, who were less aware of the full scale of Auschwitz and it's industrialised killing described the visit as 'life changing'.
