Barracks No. 6, Auschwitz I

Solomon Radasky was fortunate to be housed in Barracks No. 6 in Auschwitz I, the original Polish labor exchange and Polish Army Barracks. Conditions in Auschwitz I were superior to the vast Auschwitz-Birkenau camp. Many of the brick barracks of Auschwitz I were originally single-story buildings, and they were given a second story and a spacious attic to accomodate an early expansion of the camp. The appearance of Auschwitz I is rows of neat brick buildings surrounded by the ever-present electrified barbed wire.
