Witness the Horrors of the Holocaust
Make a short trip from Krakow and visit the most important historical site in all of Europe, the Auschwitz concentration camp and museum. An enduring symbol of one of the greatest crimes on humanity ever perpetrated, the Holocaust museum at Auschwitz stands as a memorial to the millions who were ruthlessly murdered by the Nazi regime, and a testament to the strength of those who survived to tell the tale. Within the barbed wire fences of the camps at Auschwitz and Birkenau, 1.5 million victims lost their lives to the many atrocities committed by the sadistic SS guards and the kapos to fulfill the Nazi Final Solution. Learn more about the unfortunate inmates of the death camps and their tragic stories on this guided tour.
Your guide will lead you through both of the concentration camps located in Auschwitz and Birkenau, all the while trying to illustrate the sheer scale of the horrors of the Holocaust with the help of facts and anecdotes. Learn more about the inmates and the grueling lives they were forced to lead from the various exhibits at the UNESCO listed museum, with extensive documentation of the many trials and tribulations the prisoners had to undergo. Further, you will be led through the camp at Birkenau, where you can see for yourself the horrendous living conditions the prisoners were subjected to, and the gas chambers where they were executed en masse. A sobering reminder of the great evils humanity is capable of, this visit to Auschwitz is sure to not leave you unchanged.
