Birkenau

Posted by
Darkelf Photography (Perth, Australia) on 7 November 2008 in Lifestyle & Culture.

this is a shot taken from the main rail ramp at the second and larger part of the camp - Birkenau, which was built a little later than Auschwitz... this is where the trains with people arrived and where first selection took place... the trains were made up of cattle carriages and often not many people survived the journey itself... you can see what the carriages looked like in this photo: final destination

once again this is a colour photo rather than the usually taken b&w - the reasons for it i explained in response to comments in my previous post... i do take on board, however, the comments about b&w being more appropriate and I have post processed one or two photos in b&w and will post them here soon...

in reality, it is a tragic and sad place regardless of whether it is portrayed in colour or in b&w...
