Auschwitz-Birkenau was the largest concentration camp established by the Nazi regime in June 1940 to carry the extermination of 1.1 million European Jews but also 140,000 Poles, 23,000 Gypsies, 15,000 Soviet prisoners of war and 25,000 prisoners of other nationalities, mostly Czech, Belarusian, German, French, Russian, Yugoslavian, Ukrainian and many others from the countries of Nazi-occupied Europe. It consisted of three main camps: Auschwitz I, Auschwitz II - Birkenau (the largest centre for the extermination of Jews and the largest Nazi German concentration camp) and Auschwitz III (Monowitz). After WW2 the Polish government restored Auschwitz and turned it into a museum. It was also included on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1979. What makes this an exceptional place is the fact that it was the largest extermination centre, and is the only camp to be preserved to such an extent in its original condition. The museum consists of the grounds containing human ashes, ruins of gas chambers and crematoria, the places where Nazi doctors carried out selection, the roads leading to the gas chambers, the places where Jewish families awaited death and execution sites. The most moving evidence of crimes is almost two tons of victim's hair.
