You will have an opportunity to see with your own eyes how more than a million people suffered, and worked in grievous environment during this 7-hour tour from Krakow. This tour is one that everyone should take once in a lifetime to not forget.Description
Walk into the camp through the main gate, just like thousands of its prisoners did, looking up at the infamous Arbeit macht frei sign. Highly ironic, as most of them were never to see the outside world again.Highlights
See the living conditions of the prisoners while visiting the blocks. See also objects of everyday use, pictures of individual prisoners, original documents, crematoria, original wooden barracks, the bathhouse and the watchtower.
People say the most horrifying sight are the piles of personal belongings taken from the prisoners, as well as the gas chamber and the Death Wall which remind us of their sad fate. It is especially important to remember them today. As George Santayana said: “Those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it”.
