Living conditions

Auschwitz I, Block 7 – Living and sanitary conditions

Illustration of the living and sanitary-hygienic conditions for prisoners in various phases of the existence of the camp. Original camp interiors contained reconstructions of the appearance of residential rooms in the main camp and a reconstruction of part of the interior of a brick barracks.

Living conditions were also illustrated through photographs and reproductions of artwork by former prisoners. As in block 6, there were enlarged prisoner mug shots here.
