  • 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.
