More than 70 years have passed since the liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration and extermination camp.


More than a million people were murdered. With “Inside Auschwitz” the WDR presents the first ever global 360° project realised in Auschwitz-Birkenau.


Anita Lasker-Wallfisch, Philomena Franz and Walentyna Nikodem are three survivors of the holocaust. Guided by their stories and with the aid of a 360 ° drone, you can experience the huge dimensions of Auschwitz.

Special thanks to Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum, Philomena Franz, Anita Lasker-Wallfisch and Walentyna Nikodem.
