visit to camp


Auschwitz-Birkenau Complex is a vivid reminder to its visitors of the consequences of unadulterated hate. A place to go and learn that
"…some evils are beyond forgiveness…" It is a place of memory, of pilgrimage and of education.

From the spring of 1942 Auschwitz II (Birkenau) became the largest extermination site for the Jews transported here under the Nazi plan. More than 1, 100, 000 men, women, and children were murdered there. During the visit to Auschwitz/Birkenau guide will take you round the cells, barracks and gas chambers and explain the meaning behind the pictures and exhibits in the museum depicting the tragic history of Auschwitz/Birkenau. A shameful human heritage that must be seen by everyone to understand how things can go crazy and stand against when necessary. There is a lot to learn from the experience.

A Recent Review of this tour

We spent two days touring with Renata. First day was city tour and second day she took us to see Auschwitz. She is very knowledgeable and an excellent driver, so we truly enjoyed the country side. We didn't have to worry about tickets, getting into a wrong line, being lost, etc. It truly was a hassle and worry free tour.
