Learn about the dark past of World War 2 with this private day trip to of the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp from Krakow.
Auschwitz Birkenau Private Day Trip
We'll pick you up from your hotel in Krakow at the scheduled time and set off for Auschwitz-Birkenau. In just an hour and a half, we'll arrive at what was the largest Nazi extermination camp during the Second World War. This place has been declared a World Heritage Site since 1979 so that we don't forget the crimes of the Holocaust.
We'll start the tour in the prison blocks; today there are several exhibitions that explain how prisoners were punished for resting after hard work or for any issue that occurred to the SS guards. Afterwards, we'll continue through to one of the most shocking areas of the concentration camp: the gas chambers and cremation area. There we'll learn how far the regime's brutality and how fearful political propaganda could lead people to commit such disgraceful crimes.
We'll continue with the tour discovering the most recognised part of this terrifying place. Here we'll see the train tracks that were used to enter the camp itself with thousands of people on board. When the train stopped, some were selected for imminent extermination, as prisoners or for medical experimentation. Jews, Gypsies, Spanish Republicans, political prisoners and homosexuals all lost their lives in this camp.
From here we can see the barracks, latrines and the remains of four crematoriums with gas chambers that were destroyed in an attempt to hide what had happened in Auschwitz-Birkenau from the Soviet troops. At the end of the visit, you'll have 45 minutes free time for lunch and we'll return to Krakow, where we'll arrive back at your hotel after a twelve-hour excursion.
