Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum, Krakow 0700 departure

Extra1
Explore the darkest chapter in history with this emotive tour of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the most notorious Nazi concentration camps. Representing a truly awful point in the history of humanity, this tour of the camps will give you insights into both the strengths and weaknesses of the human condition. Exactly how many innocent men, women and children were murdered at Auschwitz is not known but all estimates are above the one-million mark. The tour includes a visit to Auschwitz I, the administrative centre of the camp, and Auschwitz II, which was designed and constructed as an extermination facility. Walk through the gate bearing the fallacious inscription: ‘Arbeit macht frei’ (work sets one free) and begin touring the complex. The guide will explain the origins of the camp, its history and the everyday life of the prisoners. The memorial and museum were founded in 1947 and the complex comprises the camps of Auschwitz (Auschwitz I) in Oświęcim and Birkenau (Auschwitz II) in Brzezinka. There are approximately 150 buildings and 300 ruins. The original roads, fences, watchtowers and railway ramps have all been preserved. In 1979, the camp was designated a Unesco World Heritage Site. Out of respect for those who lost their lives here, please maintain the dignity and sanctity of these memorials by wearing appropriate attire. This tour will provide an education into a history that can never be forgotten so that the steps and climate leading up to it will never be repeated again.
