View of the west half of the former concentration camp which is now a Memorial Site

From the gate house, tour groups usually walk north on the path on the west side of the camp, which leads to the crematorium and the five gas chambers. This path goes past 16 rectangular beds of gravel which represent the locations of buildings torn down in 1964. On the other side are 16 more gravel beds where buildings used to stand. In the center, the round building is the Catholic Church of the Mortal Agony of Christ. Directly behind it are the white buildings of the Carmelite Convent. On the left is the Protestant Church of Reconciliation. The Jewish Memorial is a small, partially-underground building in the northeast corner.
