Auschwitz concentration camp was established in April of 1940. It is located about 65 kilometers west of Krakow. Enlarged in the subsequent war years, it became a site of mass genocide. Some 1.5 million people of 28 nationalities died within it's barriers. In 1979 the Auschwitz - Birkenau concentration camp was entered onto the UNESCO World Heritage List. The site was turned into a museum in 1947. The infamous concentration and work camp has now become a living memorial and museum.
