Description

Around 1.5 million people – Jews, Poles and political prisoners – died at the hands of the Nazis at Auschwitz-Birkenau. See for yourself where the atrocities of the Nazi's “Final Solution” were carried out on this poignant guided tour of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp and memorial.

Your tour begins during your journey to the camp itself, with the screening of a 15-minute documentary to give you its background and history. Once you arrive at the largest of the Nazi death camps, you head out on a tour of various exhibitions based in its prison blocks, gas chambers and crematorium. You have the chance to gain an insight into the terrifying reality faced by its inmates during the war.

Visit both Auschwitz I and the larger Auschwitz-Birkenau, the site of a watchtower with extensive views over its forbidding grounds. The Martyrdom Museum was opened here in 1947 to commemorate those who died in the camp during the war. This significant and sobering visit will have a lasting effect on your perception of Europe’s history over the last century.
