where the track ends...

another photo taken in the Birkenau concentration camp - this one is a reverse of the shot posted six days ago... this is what can be seen through one of the two little windows in the guard tower above the rail track leading into the camp...

this is the main ramp where all transports found their way from all over Europe... you can see the remains of the buildings in the reflection in the open glass... right towards the end of the tracks is where the crematoria used to be - they were destroyed at the end of the war... this is also where a memorial plaque is located...

i have gone ever more "creative" with my post processing here - i am contrasting the darker side and feeling with the colours of how the place looks like in reality... no matter how one looks at it, the concentration camp is not an easy place or subject to digest and take in...
