Get picked up from your accommodation in an air-conditioned minivan. From here you will first visit KL Auschwitz 1, where you walk past the iron gate engraved with the slogan - Arbeit Macht Frei, which translates to Work Sets You Free. Take a look at the 22 brick barracks where thousands of victims of the holocaust were kept.
Next, you will be guided towards the haunting Block Number 11. This block contained torture chambers including dark chambers or standing cells where prisoners were victims of various types of horrific punishments. Block Number 11 is where the first extermination using Zyklon B took place. At the end of the camp, you’ll find the only remaining crematorium and gas chambers.
After KL Auschwitz 1, your driver will take you to KL Auschwitz 2, Birkenau. This area of the camp is an astonishing 25 times larger than Auschwitz 1, making it the largest of all the death camps. Tragedy hides within these walls where over 1 million people died. Inside the 62 wooden barracks which were originally designed as stables, you will see the ruins of 4 gas chambers. These chambers were destroyed by the Nazis in an attempt to hide the evidence of their crimes.
Towards the end of your tour, you will be taken to the Memorial, where you can pay your respects to all the victims of the genocide.
