Description

Auschwitz-Birkenau Around 60 km to the west of Krakow is the small town of Oswiecim, where in 1940 a set of German concentration camps was established. Auschwitz-Birkenau was the largest German concentration camp, where more than 1.5 million prisoners were tortured and murdered during the Second World War. Auschwitz-Birkenau is preserved intact as a reminder of the crime committed against humanity here. The museum includes the ruins of crematoria, gas chambers, the railway platform and other objects of the former concentration camp. Schindler's Factory Visit to one of the most popular museums in Krakow - the former Enamel Factory, where a German entrepreneur employed Jews to save them from deportation to camps and death, there is an exhibition 'Krakow under Nazi occupation'. The modern arrangement of the exhibition is rather a theater and a film telling the history of the city, its inhabitants and occupants, rather than an ordinary museum. During the tour you will see: 1) The Auschwitz Memorial Museum 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. 2) Visit one of the most important and popular museums in Krakow on a guided tour of Oskar Schindler's enamel factory and immerse yourself in daily life for the citizens of Krakow during the Nazi Occupation of 1939 to 1945. During your tour, learn about the history of World War II and its impact on the everyday life of ordinary people. See the headquarters of the enamel company, Deutsche Emailwarenfabrik, and hear how its owner, Oskar Schindler saved many of his employees from inevitable death.
