There is a great audio guide that they provide and it tells you a lot about the camp, and from what I learned, this camp was the ‘transit camp’ where everyone was divided and then sent off to the work or death camps. There are no gas chambers here and it was mainly used to hold political prisoners.
While you get pretty much full access to every chilled room, dark hallway and muddy corner of the grounds, I chose not to take a lot of pictures. The things you see, sit with you and it is hard to erase images from your mind once you see this place. There is also a mini museum type exhibition at the end which by that point I couldn’t stomach anymore and while it looked informative I had to forgo that section and step outside.
This place took an emotional toll on me, more so than the Anne Frank house did. After walking past some of the rooms and hearing about what happened here I started to get a sickening feeling in my stomach and I was just overcome with a very deep sadness which I think most people feel when they walk through a place like this.
