Auschwitz II-Birkenau. The interior of a wooden barracks for prisoners. Those building were German army horse stables. Instead of 52 horses 400-500 people crowded on wooden bunk beds on both sides of the barracks. These barracks had no windows. Instead there was a row of skylights on either side at the top. A chimney duct which heated the interior in the winter ran almost the entire length of the barracks. --- Photo by @radovsk.n ---
