Officials at the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp museum say half a historic barracks that was on loan to the U.S. has been returned to Poland after two decades and long negotiations.
The museum said on its website that the wooden structure arrived at Poland's port of Gdynia on Sunday.
The barracks will undergo conservation and be joined with its other half. The structure served as hospital at Birkenau.
Between 1940 and 1945, the Nazis killed some 1.5 million people, mostly Jews, at the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp.
