Between May 1940 and January 1945, 1.1 million prisoners were killed in the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp in Poland -- and that's just the figure on record. 

It was tragic, but thankfully operations in the concentration camp were ceased after it was liberated by the Allied troops.

The ruins of the wooden huts with brick fireplaces and chimneys, which once served as death rooms for innocents Jews, are now maintained only as a World Heritage Site.

Many people know the story of what happened in Auschwitz-Birkenau, but most people have never seen just how massive and depressing the area is from an aerial view.

The video above shows the ruins of the concentration camp from a drone's point of view and it's extremely chilling. Check it out.
