  • Visit this concentration camp is a must-see. In addition offer a guide service in many different languages that explained you in detail the different corners as well as guide you on a visit complete for a small fee. In this service you carry both to visit Auswchitz as Birkenau. Worth a lot waiting for the guide service. Not the visit on your own because you will lose many details of vital importance.

  • Drove car hit and walked around for hours and read all the descriptions that are available. A powerful experience, but important.

  • What shall I say. A terrible chapter in German is vividly to relive history other than to know it from books. Can I only recommend to anyone.

  • Definitively one of the most interesting places in South Poland. Most museums or memorials just tell the story of WW II but here they see history in the whole point of view. I was told how everything was before '39, the relations between politics and the time and the AJC showed me the nice city of Oświecim too. Awesome. The Auschwitz Camp has more than 1 Mio visitors per year and so little have seen the city. A pity. There is also a Jewish Cemetery, which is visitable - I got a great explanation of the ideas of a Jewish Cemetery and the differences to a Christian one. I recommend this place to everyone who comes to Poland.
  • Nothing interesting.
