Full description
Spend an hour and fifteen minutes in an air-conditioned bus, as you depart Krakow for a confronting day of reflection at the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp complex, a solemn place that leaves a lasting impression on all visitors, and an important memorial to the victims of the Holocaust. Visit the museum and memorial in the suburbs of Oświęcim, about 60 kilometers west of Krakow. Upon arrival meet a professional guide who will show you around the site and speak of its dark history. Receive a lunch box, to take a break with during the tour. Discover the tragic history of the largest concentration camp of the Holocaust, funded by the Nazi party in 1940, Auschwitz-Birkenau became both a symbol of human suffering and a witness to physical and emotional exhaustion. Learn how it became the final resting place for millions of people, mostly Jews, put to their death in the hideous gas chambers. Pass through the gate with the inscription “Arbeit Macht Frei" (work sets you free) to enter Auschwitz I, where your guide will show you around the preserved area and explain the history of this place. Then, spend about one hour at the second camp at Birkenau, where mass killings took place as part of the Nazi “Final Solution to the Jewish Question”, before meeting your driver for the return journey to Kraków.

Super goed verzorgd. Klein puntje is wel dat wij deze excursie hebben uitgezocht, omdat deze ook voor rolstoegangers geschikt zou zijn. Echter, rolstoeltoegankelijk is een groot woord. De rolstoel moest over onverharde wegen in Auschwitz en Birkenau en dit was hard duwen. Ik snap dat dit omwille van de historische waarde niet kan worden veranderd, maar wil mensen hier wel graag op wijzen. Denk dat het met regen sowieso niet te doen is. Fantastische medereizigers en chauffeur die ons enorm hielpen
