Auschwitz is one of the best-known concentration camps in the world; it is a place of genocide where approximately 1.5 million people were killed during WWII. The tour includes a visit to Auschwitz I - the administrative centre of Auschwitz death camp and Auschwitz II, designed and constructed as an extermination facility. The place has remained a living monument of death. Every year, millions of visitors  from around the world walk through the gate bearing a fallacious inscription: Arbeit macht frei – "Work sets one free". Defeating the same route as prisoners for over half a century ago. The programme of the visit comprises the introduction to the origins of the camp, its history and the everyday life of its prisoners.

 

The Auschwitz-Birkenau complex was established in 1940 and throughout the five years of its inglorious operation over 1.5 million Jews, Poles, Italians and Frenchman perished here. It should be emphasized that the prisoners of Auschwitz originated from every country in Europe. The museum was founded in 1947, combining the area of KL Auschwitz (Auschwitz I) in Oświęcim and the Birkenau camp (Auschwitz II) in Brzezinka; it comprises approximately 150 buildings and 300 ruins. The original roads, fences, watchtowers and railway ramps have been preserved. The buildings house the collection of original exhibits and documents. In 1979, the concentration camp was designated as one of the  UNESCO's World Heritage Sites.

It's terrifying…what a human being can do to another human being. Scratch marks in the gas chamber. Remaning belongings of the dead. Pictures of half-starved men. It's nothing for the weak nerves.

The trip itself is very interesting, the guide made sure we got all the answers and really surprised us with his knowledge. Pricewise - well worth the cost.

Very good value for the money in my opinion, we looked around for other tours to Auschwitz in Krakow but they were more expensive, so at the end and we took this one and had no regrets! It was nice that they showed us a documentary on the bus on the way there - helps to create an atmosphere. Many thanks to our guide who did a top-service job! We could hear everything clearly and had no problems hearing him. Wonderful trip and lots of memories!!!!
