Quite eerie and really hits you just seeing how calm it is now vs what it was used for back in the 40's. I think you captured the camp well, the processing fits well with the subject nature.

Was this a special access or do they always give tours?

There are guided tours for both camps. It takes about 3-4 hours to do the basic tour for both camps. Well worth it

Extremely eerie. Great photos, but there's just a humbling/sad presence when you look at that.

Nicely presented. Your processing captures the somberness of the place and shows the respect and dignity it deserves. Well done.

Thanks for the comments, here are a few more. The atmosphere is very sad and quiet indeed

Outstanding job! These are powerful. I can hear sirens, dogs barking, gun fire, and feel the fear. Thanks for posting.

Very nice compositions and good reportage. It's a very sad place, but I must admit that visiting Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration Camp in the winter time is much more depressing.

It was hard with 28 degrees, I can't imagine with -30! :)
