Concentration camp of Birkenau – Help page

This exhibit is arranged around a map of Birkenau. On the map, you can see many places which are labeled with red rectangles. Each one of those rectangles is a hot spot – clicking on it will take you to a page containing a photograph of that location and a brief description of the site. You can return to the map from each of the photographic pages by clicking on the MAP tab at the bottom of the page or by clicking the BACK button on your browser.

You can view these pictures in three ways:

1) The Map with hot spots.
2) The List of Titles with hot spots
3) The right and left pointer tabs on each photo. Right will take you forward. Left will take you back.

If the photographs look patchy, or if you are experiencing difficulties in displaying these pages, check the following:

You should be using a browser that supports tables, client-side image maps and table background colors. Netscape 3.0 or higher and Microsoft Internet Explorer 3.0 or higher work best.

Your monitor should be set to display thousands or millions of colors. (256 colors just isn’t enough to view photographs).

Considering the fact that most of the images are around 30K in size, viewing this site on a dial-up connection at less that 28,800 baud will be very slow.
