  • View the prison dormitories, gas chambers and exhibitions at Auschwitz I
  • See what remains of Birkenau’s watchtowers, fences, barracks and gas chambers
  • Trace the stories of individual prisoners and visit the memorials to the camps’ victims
  • Learn the history of WWII’s Holocaust and about the liberation of Auschwitz in 1945

Description

The tour of the Museum, included on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 1978, comprises both parts of the former concentration camp – Auschwitz I and Auschwitz II-Birkenau – and a documentary film presenting the first moments after the camp was liberated. The Auschwitz camp has become a symbol of terror, genocide, and the Holocaust. It was established by the Nazis in 1940 in the suburbs of the city of Auschwitz, which was integrated into the Third Reich. In 1942 it became one of the centers for Endlösung der Judenfrage (the final solution of the Jewish issue) – the Nazi plan to murder the Jews living in the territories occupied by the Third Reich. The Auschwitz camp, until the end of its existence, was first and foremost a place of extermination. It has become a world-famous symbol of the Nazi genocide, in particular the destruction of the Jews. Today it serves as a memorial to those who lost their lives here, with hundreds of people visiting daily to pay their respects.
