Horse Stable: A Barracks for Men


Originally designed for fifty-two horses, these wooden stables were used extensively in Auschwitz-Birkenau. Each provided the living space for over a thousand prisoners. More than two hundred of these barracks were built. In typical, thorough fashion, they were constructed complete with the rings for tying the horses attached to the walls.
