European Quartet One Melody

 

From Kraków (the old capital of Poland):

This concentration camp is on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The Nazis set up the concentration camp in Auschwitz (Oświęcim) in 1940 and in Birkenau (Brzezinka) in 1942. The biggest Nazi concentration camp on Polish territory became an extermination camp where one and a half million people were murdered. The majority of the victims were Jews from Poland and Central Europe. The second largest group of victims were Poles. During the annual March of the Living, thousands of Jews from across the world, including young Poles march from the Auschwitz gate to the martyrdom memorial in Birkenau in commemoration of the victims of the Holocaust.
