The sound of silence must be heard…
A symbol of terror, genocide and the Holocaust. Over 1.1 million men, women and children lost their lives here. The original stones, bricks, buildings, descriptions, dozens of witness accounts, archival documents and photographs, that survived the horrors of the past are silent but have many stories to tell… This tour is not only a history lesson but above all a fundamental experience.
Because of huge interest, we recommend booking the visit in advance. The exact time of entrance must be confirmed.
Oswiecim (Auschwitz-Birkenau) – Krakow
Morning tour to Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum in Oswiecim, included on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1978; the tour comprises both parts of the former concentration camp – Auschwitz I and Auschwitz II-Birkenau. KL Auschwitz was established by the Nazis in 1940, and was the largest of the German Nazi concentration camps and extermination centres. It has become a symbol of terror, genocide and the Holocaust. Over 1.1 million men, women and children lost their lives here. Today, on the area of approx. 200 hectares you can see preserved ruins of the gas chambers and places filled with human ashes, primitive barracks for prisoners and miles of the camp fence and roads (duration up to 6-7 h).
