Auschwitz was the biggest and most brutal Nazi death camp, today it remains a potent symbol of terror and genocide. More than a million Jews were murdered there, as well as tens of thousands of Poles, Gypsies and Soviet prisoners of war.

What is the “Auschwitz syndrome”? It is a reference to the state of being in serious pain for a long time and start to think the situation is normal just because you got used to it.
