Witness the stark reminders of human cruelty at the Concentration Camps.


Auschwitz-Birkcnau Concentration Camp - the fortified walls, barbed wires, platforms, barracks, gallows, gas chamhers and cremation ovens show the conditions within which the Nazi genocide took place in the formed concentration and extermination camp of Auschwitz- Birkenau. This camp was the largest and the most terrible in the Third Reich.

According to historical investigations, at least 1. 5 million people, among them a great number of Jews, were systematically starved, tortured and murdered in this camp. Auschwitz is known throughout the world as a symbol of humanity's cruelty to its fellow human beings in the 20th century.

The former Nazi camp is situated 76 kilometers (50 miles) from Cracow.

A Recent Review of this tour

While on our drive us to Auschwitz/Birkenau Marta was very informative-we enjoyed our conversation with her (she was also a very good driver) I don't know how we would have navigated the crowds at Auschwitz without her-she was a lifesaver...she connected us with a very good tour guide who took us to both camps. It wasn't an easy day and we were happy to have Marta.
