Mauthausen Concentration Camp Today (2017)

In 2017 I’ve journeyed to Austria and the Mauthausen Concentration Camp, near Linz. I’ve studied the history of the main sites and want to share it with my photos of how it looks today. A 5000-words material for those, who are interested.

Thanks for sharing, I visited the camp a decade ago some of it still haunts me today. Truly a terrible place.

Blimey that's a long list!

What was the most interesting?

I think everyone should visit one in their lifetime.

Will genuinely ground everyone.

Madanjek and ravensbruck  and birkenau  (auschwitz2)

1 madanjek 

Because it is almost intact  because the germans had no time to destroy it

2 ravensbruck 

Because it was a woman only camp and the prison inside the camp is stil intact and when you walk to the main gate on the outside  the buildings of the  Siemens and blaupunkt are stil there were the prisoners had work

3 birkenau 

Because it is unbelievable how big it is

 But every one of them has special things I read allot of books on this subject so I wanted to see the places I read about  for example a book about nacht und nebel prisoners ( it was a extra punishment for resistance fighters) from holland were send to natzweiler in France so I visited the place to see what is left of it and in honour of the people in that book.

I also agree with you that everybody should visit at least one camp.

I think it could be a good subject for children about 14-16 years on their schools to show them that peace and all the freedoms we have is not for granted.

When I have time I will post some pictures of the camps . Al my trips through Europe my father joined me he was a amateur photographer not really interested in the second world war but loved to take pictures of al that he thought was interesting.  Sadly hè died 4 months ago but the pictures are stil on his laptop and it' s a little bit difficult to find the right ones because there are 35 thousand pictures on it.
