The BBC flew a drone over Auschwitz and the images are unforgettable

Seventy years after the liberation of Auschwitz, the BBC gave the world a chance to see the ruins of the concentration camp where 1.1 million people died.

A drone equipped with a camera was launched over the site located in southern Poland, and the images that resulted were hauntingly powerful.

The footage’s release coincided with an official memorial service in January of 2015, marking the 70th anniversary since Auschwitz was freed by the Soviet army.
