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.
