This memorable tour offers an in-depth visit to the former Nazi concentration camp located on the outskirts of Oswiecim in south Poland. It possibly became the site of the greatest mass murder in the history of humanity.
Auschwitz-Birkenau was the largest concentration and extermination camp established by the Nazis during the Second World War. Created formally in 1940 as a concentration camp for Polish political prisoners, it became in fact the centre for the extermination of European Jews. Between 1.1 and 1.4 million people met their deaths at Auschwitz-Birkenau. A local guide will recount the camp's history of terror, hope and human sacrifice. The watchtowers, barbed-wire fences, loading ramps, execution walls, gas chambers and crematoria of the Nazi machinery of genocide are still standing. This site is a key place of our collective memory of the darkest period in the history of humanity. Auschwitz - Birkenau was inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List in 1979. During the tour you visit both parts of Auschwitz State Museum located in Oswiecim (KL Auschwitz I) and Brzezinka (KL Auschwitz II Birkenau).
Visit Auschwitz-Birkenau and Kraków or Wieliczka Salt Mine in one day. Contact us for more details.
