Around 1.5 million people—Jews, Poles, and political prisoners—died at the hands of the Nazis at Auschwitz-Birkenau. See for yourself where the atrocities of the Nazi's “Final Solution” were carried out on this poignant guided tour of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp memorial.
Your tour begins during your journey to the site, with a 15-minute documentary screened to give you the background and history of the camp. Once you arrive at the largest of the Nazi death camps, you head out on a tour through the exhibitions in the prison blocks, the gas chambers, and the crematorium. You have the opportunity to glimpse into the terrifying reality faced by prisoners during the war.
Visit both Auschwitz I and the larger Auschwitz-Birkenau, the site of the watchtower with views over the expansive grounds. The Martyrdom Museum was opened here in 1947 to commemorate those who died in the camp during the war. This important but sobering visit will have a lasting effect on your consciousness of recent history.
