COLLECTED CONTENT: The first transport to Auschwitz
On 14 June 1940, German concentration camp Auschwitz received 728 Poles, its first - save for thirty German criminals who had been brought here to take the positions of kapos - inmates. Initially a detention and elimination facility targeting almost exclusively the Third Reich's enemies from Poland, in time it expanded the scope of its operation, adding extermination of Jews from all over Europe, slave labour benefitting the German industry, large-scale robbery of deportees, and many others.
