The first train to Auschwitz

archive photos

Images of four men who were among the 728 prisoners to be brought by the first train to concentration camp in Auschwitz on June 14, 1940. They were fortunate to have lived through the hell in the camp. Two of them escaped the camp dressed in stolen German uniforms.
Photos were shot at their homes and show them as they were in 2010, with their memorabilia from wartime.
