  • What a wonderful place to visit especially if you have any connection with WW11 as I did my Father was a RAF POW. Marek The Museum Director and his Staff are completely dedicated to the upkeep of this...  more »
  • I visited Żagań (Sagan, Poland or) on podtzim, minimum visitors, beautiful weather. Museum of Nice, constantly following exposure (exposure device is in the prison House), a decent selection of literature and postcards for sale. Against the Museum replica POW hut and authentic camp Stalag Luft III. Very impressive, either, and návodně edited, in good condition. Unlike the custom Zaháně is definitely worth a visit.

  • My wife's uncle was here for a long stay during the war (USAAF). We were treated with the greatest respect. The director showed us the exhibits and we toured the grounds for 3.5 hours. The history is deep here - there is even a burial site for Napoleonic soldiers. The director and staff are not only working on keeping the museum alive, they are also conducting archaeological digs and restorations. It's really quite remarkable. Airmen and soldiers from most Allied nations were interred here through March of 1945, when they were evacuated as the Soviets approached. And of course this is the site of The Great Escape. It was the highlight of the places we visited on our recent tour of Bohemia, Saxony, Silesia and Moravia.
  • Historical location. Fantastic story of great defiance in troubled times.
  • Love to seen this live.
  • Great informative place
  • The book describe the area perfectly! So open and the tunnel monuments are cool
