Auschwitz is known for its harrowing role during the genocide of European Jews during World War II. If you wish to comprehend what happened in the Nazi concentration camps and gas chambers, there is no better place than Auschwitz-Birkenau to open a window to that ugly human history. Spend half a day here to get a glimpse of the inhuman horrors that took place here.

Visualize the Cruel Legacy of Nazis at Auschwitz

From Krakow, travel to this camp in the suburbs of Oswiecim, which the Nazis built in 1940. Observe the exhibits at Auschwitz Museum which consist of more than 700 original objects of great historic and human value. They symbolize human tragedies that resulted from Nazi ideology which can also be profoundly depressing to look at. Learn how the Nazis executed over 1.5 million people from 28 nationalities at Auschwitz.

Witness the Gas Chambers and Barracks

Walk through the concentration camps at Auschwitz-Birkenau used to imprison thousands of Jews and other POWs (prisoners of war) before being executed in the gas chambers nearby. See the empty canisters of Zyklon-B gas, the killing agent used. Gaze at the photographs of those who perished here and learn where they came from, how the Nazis transported them here, and their ordeal during their time at Auschwitz. Know why UNESCO inscribed Auschwitz as a World Heritage Site in 1979 as a symbol of "humanity's cruelty to its fellow human beings."

Spend a few hours in Auschwitz to gain more understanding of the Holocaust and walk out with a remembrance of an epic human tragedy.
