London: Harry Potter star Tom Felton paid an emotional visit to Nazi death camp Auschwitz - calling the trip "mentally painful".

The actor travelled to the site of the former concentration camp in Poland on Tuesday, the deathbed of 1.1 million people died in World War II.

He says that despite the ‘hard’ experience, his fans must visit the site to witness the true horror of Nazi tyranny.

"I went to Poland yesterday, went to Auschwitz, it was a very hard and mentally painful day, however I`m so happy I`ve been and seen all the camps. I`m completely aware of what went on only a generation ago. I recommend everyone to go, it`s something we should all see," The Daily Star quoted the star as saying on his Twitter blog.
