    Train retraces route of first Auschwitz convoy, 70 years on

    Survivors of the first-ever convoy to Auschwitz paid tribute Monday to the death camp's victims, exactly 70 years after being packed into cattle cars and sent there by German troops. A train organised by a Polish survivors' organisation arrived at the site of the camp on the outskirts of Oswiecim, southern Poland, after retracing the route of original rail convoy from the town of Tarnow, 140 kilometres (87 miles) to the east.Duration: 01:12
