Auschwitz 2: Bunker 2

Reconstruction of the foundations of Bunker 2 aka The Little White House, the second peasant cottage converted to a homicidal gas chamber by the Germans at Auschwitz-Birkenau

 The highly authoritative scrapbookpages website advises that back in 1998 the location of where Bunker 2 once stood was unknown to the Auschwitz tour guides. And it appears that further additions have been made since scrapbookpages' 2005 visit to Auschwitz

These are reconstructions of the foundations of the two undressing rooms for gas chamber victims next to Bunker 2, these evidently have been added to the exhibit since 2005

Location of Bunker Two on the plan of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the two undressing rooms
are the two oblongs on the plan, the other side of the path to Bunker 2's position

Close up of a sign at the site of Bunker 2 explaining where people undressed, were gassed, where the corpses-trolley-tracks were, where people were cremated, and finally; where their ashes were scattered
