A day in the life of Auschwitz today is a mix of history, tourism and prayer
Historians estimate that between 1.1 and 1.5 million men, women and children were murdered at Auschwitz, the largest and most notorious of the Nazi concentration and extermination camps of the Second World War. In 1947, the Polish government established the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum, which has since been visited by about 1.72 million people from around the world. In After, a stark and haunting look at the daily activities of Auschwitz today, the Polish director Lukasz Konopa deftly captures a setting where the horrors of the past and the activities of the present exist side by side.
