Majdanek National Museum, Lublin

See the intact gas chambers and crematoria at Majdanek National Museum, the best-preserved example of the Holocaust death camp. The permanent collection features archival photographs and rare items, such as shoes of adults and children and the uniforms the prisoners had to wear. Pass through parts of the barracks and along watchtowers and sentry boxes. See the two monuments erected in 1969 in honor of the victims--the monument to struggle and martyrdom, and the mausoleum made of surface soil mixed with human ashes. The visitor center sells museum guides, historical studies, memoirs, albums, and DVD films. Children under 14 are not permitted to visit the museum.

  • Never forget what they did Germany. Never. The most startling is the mound under the Mausoleum where the remains of about 80 thousand people burned in the camp's crematorium.

  • You can't say enaugh of this place. And it doesn't need descriptions. Touching lesson of history
  • the museum reflects the horror and genocide happened there. It's a tough but have to go experience to see how evil can human kind be.
  • This is a must do when in Lublin. Everyone should see a concentration camp. This is one of the best preserved camps and it's not that big compared to many others. It takes 1-2 hours to see the whole thing.
  • Definitely must visit while in Lublin...put on your walking shoes coz there's a big area to cover...free entry
  • A must visit place. The real picture of Nazi atrocities we can see here.
