UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon visited the site of Nazi death camp Auschwitz on Monday to pay tribute to Holocaust victims.

Ban Ki-moon visited Auschwitz, the first of two camps set up in neighboring towns Oswiecim and Brzezinka. He walked under the inscription "Arbeit Macht Frei" (Work makes you free) above a gate which prisoners passed on their way to their barracks.

Ban said "nothing can truly prepare one for this epicenter of evil, where systematic murder unique in human history reached its atrocious climax."
