Pope Francis visited Auschwitz on Friday to pay his respects to the thousands of people who lost their lives there during World War II.
And he spent most of the historic visit at the former Nazi concentration camp in silent prayer and reflection.
Soon after his arrival, the pope sat alone on a bench for several minutes with his eyes closed.
