What was Auschwitz II-Birkenau
Auschwitz II-Birkenau was the largest of all the Auschwitz camps as it could hold up to 90,000 prisoners. Although it was only opened for three years, it served many different purposes. It was first supposed to be for prisoners of war during its construction. Although, later on it was used as a place were prisoners were considerate until they arrived at labor camps in Germany. Around one million people died in Birkenau, around 90% of the victims that were killed in all Auschwitz camps.
