A Drone Flew Over Auschwitz. What It Captured Will Leave You Uncomfortable And Awestruck

Published on 26 December, 2016 at 7:04 pm By

It is impossible to find a man on this planet who hasn’t been dumbfounded by the atrocities of Nazis.

Between 1942 to 1945, the activities of Nazi were at its peak and Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration was filled to its capacity.



Trains after trains came to a screeching halt at the stations just outside the concentration camp, bringing in helpless Jews who knew that their days were limited.

Trains filled with Jews from entire Europe arrived at the station daily between 1942 and summer of 1944.



Auschwitz was the largest concentration camp built by the Nazis during WWII.

The camp site is now in Poland and is a World Heritage Site with thousands of tourists flocking around every year.


The spine thrilling video was shot by a drone when it flew over the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp- 70 years after it was liberated by Soviet Union Army.

Over a million Jews were mercilessly murdered there between 1940, when the camp was built, and 1945, when it was liberated.


In this video, you will see:

  1. Railway tracks leading to the concentration camp
  2. The ruins of wooden huts built at the site. Now only the chimneys and fireplaces remain intact, apart from horrifying memories.
  3. Auschwitz I entrance with the famous wrought-iron gate and infamous words “Arbeit Macht Frei” which means “only work will set you free”.
  4. Auschwitz I, erstwhile barracks of Polish Cavalry which were turned into concentration camp.
  5. Courtyard between blocks 10 and 11. Block 11 was called the “Block of Death” as the execution took place in this block. The posts are seen in the video where the prisoners were tied by hands for days at a stretch to die.


As they say, ‘ Freedom isn’t free.’
