The first prisoners arrived in spring 1940. The camp quickly expanded and became one of the main places for the concentration and murder of Jews.

Before the camp was liberated by Soviet troops on 27 January 1945 died in Auschwitz 1.1 million people, and 90% of them were Jews. They were systematically destroyed in gas chambers or beaten to death, starved, they died of starvation and disease.
