Auschwitz 2: The Monument

The monument between the gas chambers at Auschwitz II (Birkenau) was erected in 1967 at a cost of $875,000 (US), which is apparently $15,300,000 in 2012 prices.

A surprise to me was to find this cross on the central piece of the monument, although it's not a Christian Cross, a simple cross such as this ie "+" the international plus symbol, is not used by religious Jews due to supposed connotations to Jesus, who they utterly, utterly despise.
