What To Expect
Auschwitz is one of the best-known concentration camps in the world. It is a place of genocide where approximately 1.5 million people were killed during WWII. Every year, millions of visitors from around the world walk through the gate bearing a deceptive inscription: Arbeit macht frei - "Work sets one free."
The tour includes a visit to Auschwitz I, the administrative center of Auschwitz death camp, and Auschwitz II, designed and constructed as an extermination facility. We'll be covering the same route as prisoners over half a century ago. The itinerary include the introduction to the origins of the camp, its history and the everyday life of its prisoners.
The Auschwitz-Birkenau complex was established in 1940 and throughout the five years of its inglorious operation over 1.5 million Jews, Poles, Italians and Frenchman perished here. It should be emphasized that the prisoners of Auschwitz originated from every country in Europe.
The museum was founded in 1947, combining the area of KL Auschwitz (Auschwitz I) in Oswiecim and the Birkenau camp (Auschwitz II) in Brzezinka, comprising approximately 150 buildings and 300 ruins. The original roads, fences, watchtowers and railway ramps have been preserved, and the buildings house the collection of original exhibits and documents.
