Investigate and prepare an oral report on the conditions at the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp and on the camp's liberation near the end of the war.
Auschwitz concentration camp was located in former army barracks in Poland. The prisoners had to adapt buildings. They finished the adaptation in 1942. The majority of the 28 two-story buildings housed prisoners. Each block was designed to house around 700 prisoners, but they actually housed around 1,200 prisoners.
