Description

It is impossible for the people who were born after WWII to imagine what happened at the time of the Holocaust. A visit to Auschwitz Birkenau helps you understand the extent of the biggest human tragedy in history. The Nazi camp at Auschwitz was established in 1941 when the first prisoners were transported by train. For 4 years, the camp at Auschwitz was being expanded until Auschwitz II Birkenau was built, with gas chambers, and then Auschwitz III – a work camp. In 1945, thousands of people that had been physically and psychologically abused were liberated. The SS hurriedly destroyed most evidence of crimes and tests carried out on prisoners at the site. Your tour to Auschwitz starts at your hotel where your minivan with an English tour leader will pick you up. The distance between Krakow and Auschwitz Birkenau is around 65 kilometres so it takes approximately 1.5 hours. The tour includes visits to the two camps Auschwitz I and Auschwitz II Birkenau. You will see the remains of barracks, watchtowers, railway ramps, gas chambers, and crematoriums. The tour takes approximately 3.5 hours.
