Each panorama movie is available in two file sizes. The small movies display at the same size on your computer screen as the large movies, but the small movies do not allow you to zoom in on as much detail as the large movies do. All movies are a full circle (360 degrees) unless noted otherwise.

This movie was shot from the center of the Appellplatz (roll call square). It opens with a view of the "International Memorial" in front of the Wirtschoftsbebäude housing the kitchen, laundry, storage rooms, and the "shower baths" where the SS would torture prisoners by flogging and hanging them at the stake.
