It was still fairly intact, and the huts housed lots of information about what happened. Went in the gas chambers and incinerators, which unsurprisingly was odd to say the least. How anyone can deny what happened is completly beyond me.
We also went to the largest camp - Birkenau. It was just stupidly massive. Every way you look is just the chimneys from the huts where they kept the prisoners, and barbed wire. It was scorching hot, and I have a decent tan :) but we just wanted to lie down all the time.
Went out for dinner(back in Kraków)to a nice Italian restaurant, and then decidede we were having a night of drinking purely vodka. 200 ml each later, and we were home. Had a bit more at home then passed out spectacularly, all in the wrong beds.
