Poland

Concentration camp Auschwitz-I (main camp):

The main camp Auschwitz-I belonged next to the extermination camp Auschwitz-II Birkenau and Auschwitz III-Monowitz camp complex of Auschwitz and was one of the major German concentration camps. It was between May 1940 and January 1945, after the occupation of Poland in the annexed Polish territory of the German now named the district Bielsko on the southwestern edge of the town also renamed Auschwitz (Polish: Oswiecim).

Parts of the camp are now state-owned Polish museum or memorial. Since June 27, 2007, a total carries most of the former concentration camp Auschwitz in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Site, the official name "Auschwitz-Birkenau - German Nazi Concentration and Extermination Camp". The SS internal acronym in the era of National Socialism was Auschwitz (KL = concentration camps). The numbering of parts warehouse has been used mainly in the postwar period a clear distinction between the three different parts of the Auschwitz concentration camp. At times they were within the administration, the abbreviation for the three main camp.

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
