The #1 Paranormal News Site
The infamous Auschwitz concentration camp, located in Poland, is known as the infamous center of Nazi operations. Its name is almost inseparable from the dreaded events of the Holocaust. Now, just as we remember almost 75 years since the last prisoner at Auschwitz was exterminated, new photos are being released, supposedly from a drone, which shows the unspeakable.
The Drone That Flew Over Auschwitz
Almost 45 miles from the major Polish city of Krakow, Auschwitz has a history of horror-filled stories. Victims of the Holocaust starved there, died of hunger and disease, and were executed, only to be burned to grains of dust. More than 1.3 million people were sent there. Some were Jewish captives; others were political opponents of Hitler’s movement.
With drones now becoming more and more important as a tool to the news media’s information and fact finding, it is no wonder that a drone was sent over the site of the Auschwitz concentration camp.
This drone captured tons of photos from the air, showing the types of crowded living conditions that hundreds of thousands of people lived in until their deaths. Thousands of tourists visit the concentration camp every year, speaking to the immense history behind the tragedy that is Auschwitz camp. Here is one of the photos from the drone:
With three main fields for executions and thirty-nine subfields, Auschwitz was an electric chair for the Holocaust. The first field is the original location for the camp, which was used to kill more than 70,000 Polish citizens. The second field was also known as Birkenau, and was used to expand the main camp as more prisoners came in. This is shown in the above photo from the drone, but that photo only depicts part of the second camp. The housing units appear small but would be able to uncomfortably store many hundreds of prisoners.
Field two is where more than one million were executed in gas chambers or shot by firing squads. The third camp field is where the captors put their captives through intense manual slave labor. Many hundreds, if not thousands, of people, collapsed dead on the field and had to be dragged away. Many others tried to make a break for the woods, only to be shot dead by a guard and be consumed by the crows. A video can be seen here of all the field, in an extended video tour:
The camp remains in the condition it was found in when Soviet soldiers came to rescue the prisoners, except for the thin vegetation which has grown on the field and several buildings which have been knocked down. It was declared a World Heritage Site in the late 1970’s.
