DescriptionDrive from Krakow to the Auschwitz-Birkenau complex. After approximately 70 kilometers and passing through security, walk through the gate that says Arbeit Macht Frei (Work Frees), then go inside to learn how the complex, built by the Nazis in 1940, quickly turned from an internment camp to a resort mass murder. Your guide will discuss the history of the camp and show you around the buildings that act as exhibition pavilions. Each brick of the barrack, a board of a watchtower, a fence wire, a fragment of someone's glasses, a photo in a display case tells a fragment of a tragic story. After seeing exhibitions in the old prison blocks, pay tribute to the victims at the gloomy camp memorial. In Birkenau, on a vast territory, experience the mapped living conditions in barracks, you will feel the enormity of evil that cannot be repeated. Return to Krakow by the same route and have a rest or meal break (not part of the offer). Then we will invite you to visit the exhibition 'Krakow during the occupation' in the former Oskar Schindler's enamel factory. Although this name is known to many, this trip does not tell about the fate of a German entrepreneur, but gives an opportunity to feel the atmosphere of Krakow, which was immortalized by the director in a famous film, which reigned during the German occupation. Thanks to the modern multimedia installation, you will walk along the cobbled streets of the city, enter the photographer's studio, look at the hairdresser, take a tram, see a typical apartment in the Jewish ghetto, and then find yourself with the inhabitants of the Płaszów concentration camp...
