Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial of Holocaust and tragedy of World War II
During the Auschwitz tour from Krakow you will visit a shocking place that witnessed unimaginable human suffering and pain. The camp in Auschwitz was established in occupied Poland in mid 1940, initially for Polish political prisoners. In 1942, it was the prime target of the extermination of Jews in occupied Poland. In January 1945, the camp was closed, absorbed in unimaginable human loss. In this former German Nazi concentration and extermination camp, they murdered more than a million people (including over a million Jews, nearly 100,000 Poles and many other nations).
The Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum is one of the most memorable places in the world to commemorate the tragedy of the Holocaust. It is also a place where the fates and sufferings of many nations affected by World War II are intertwined.
Testimonials: I visited Krakow in June, 2019 with some friends. I’d heard that one can’t visit Krakow without visiting Auschwitz. We were late to get our tour set up, but Seweryn came through! He was highly recommended by a friend, and he didn’t disappoint.
He set us up with an early morning 3.5 hour tour of Auschwitz/Birkineau. We were set up with shuttle buses leaving from Krakow. Drivers were courteous and buses were clean. It was easy to set up a pick-up point near to our Air BNB that was located on a no-traffic street. The tour guide at Auschwitz was a guide employed at the memorial site.
