Type of a trip Guided tour to Auschwitz - Birkenau

 

This memorable tour lets you experience the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial at its fullest. This historic site is a worldwide symbol of the terror, genocide and the Holocaust—a site that was central to the extermination of 1.5 million: Jewish and Polish peoples, Gypsies and many others during World War II.
Heading out of Wroclaw on our journey, we will begin with a drive past the Gliwice Radio Station. On August 31st, 1939, the German SS staged a 'Polish' attack on the Gleiwitz (Gliwice) radio station on this site. This attack was later used as justification by Nazi Germany for the invasion of Poland in September 1939.

Next, we will travel to Oswiecim (Auschwitz in German). Auschwitz- Birkenau was the largest concentration and extermination camp established by the Nazis during World War II. This accurately preserved memorial consists of two parts of the former concentration camp: Auschwitz I and Auschwitz II-Birkenau. A guided visit of both sections makes it possible to understand this unique place in its entirety. You will get to experience life as a prisoner: the fortified walls, barbed wire, railway sidings, platforms, barracks, gallows, gas chambers and crematoria. All this will help create a deeper understanding of the infamous project of the Holocaust, as well as the Nazi policy of mass murder and forced labour.

Auschwitz-Birkenau is included on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.
