Visits to concentration camps #holocaust

It appears to me that the concentration camps from the Holocaust were not widely talked about from 1945 for the next 20 to 25 years.  I visited Auschwitz in October of 1970.  I was the only person there that day except for the admin staff and maintenance staff. A film about the camp was available to be shown in the auditorium.  They had trouble finding a copy in English and I watched it alone in the auditorium. Travel by bus and train to the site was difficult.  My  question is:  who had visited camps before 1970 as I haven't met anyone who had?
