Drone Flight Over Auschwitz Concentration Camp
Auschwitz was the largest concentration camp established by the Germans during World War II. More than a million prisoners – the vast majority of them Jews – died there between 1940, when it was built, and 1945, when it was liberated by the Soviet army. Auschwitz-Birkenau is now a museum run by the Polish Culture Ministry, and a Unesco world heritage site. 70 years after the liberation, BBC reporters show the camp as it is today. They mounted a camera on a drone and took a flight over Auschwitz concentration camp.
“One minute in Auschwitz was like an entire day. A day was like a year. A month, an eternity.”
Roman Kent, Holocaust survivor.
