"The Ghosts of Auschwitz and Birkenau" Copyright  Cole Thompson
Death Railway
 There are a few historical `hells` on this planet, places where so much evil and bloodshed took place that the soil, air, and structures bounded by it are immersed into a portal of misery and suffering.

Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration Camp, at Oswiecim, in Poland must qualify as one of the worst.

Auschwitz death camp was in operation from May 1940 until its liberation by Soviet forces in January 1945. It is estimated that 2.1 to 2.5 million people were killed in the gas chambers during that time, of whom 2 million were Jews and the remainder were Poles, Gypsies and Soviet POWs. But this estimate is considered by historians to be strictly a minimum, because the total number of deaths at Auschwitz and its sister camp Birkenau can never really be known.

  Often referred to as one of the world’s most haunted locations, people report feeling multiple cold spots while wandering the fields, as well as a sense of dread and sadness overcoming them as they pass through the gates.
Some even claim to feel the hands of spirits hold onto their own as they walk through what was once the children’s centres or the gas chamber. People cry and become inconsolable upon entering and cannot contain themselves for hours after they have left.

It is claimed that birds do not enter the camp, and in the rare times that they do, they do not sing.

One visitor reported that someone or something tugged on her clothes and she heard a voice whispering to her but could not make out anything but one or two words, " please" and "leave!"...

 Photographs over the years have revealed the presence of spirit manifestations in the form of misty apparitions, shadows, light anomalies and orbs.

 To date (and one suspects out of respect) no paranormal investigation has been allowed inside, but I`m sure that if this happened some terrible scenes and manifestations would re-enact some of the most horrendous moments in it`s history.

 I will probably go there sometime soon. My great grand-parents were Jews of a family named Silverman who were believed to be from Poland and who emigrated to England during the reign of Queen Victoria.
 My personal feelings are that some of those unfortunates who were murdered there may have been distant relations of mine, and that thought adds a personal dimension to the revulsion and sadness that most visitors feel when they pass through the gate `Arbeit macht frei` (work makes you free).
