Auschwitz I Electrified Fence

The first view is of one of the streets that run almost the entire width of the camp. Scrolling to the right, pause in the middle of the double fence This was built by the first prisoners in 1940. It was electrified and warning signs were posted along it. See: [link]. Moving back to the virtual tour note the precision in its construction. Not only is this representative of the German talent for order, but also it indicates just how dedicated the creation of the SS concentrationary universe.
