A very good experience thanks to David, our guide. Despite the fact that there is hardly anything left, he has managed to convey what the field was. He has a lot of knowledge and very interesting anecdotes. Thanks for making it so enjoyable

Having arrived at the former camp, we'll remember the tragic events which took place here from 1943 onwards, when Płaszów began to receive thousands of Jews from the Krakow ghetto. As we walk through the remains of the camp, we'll learn about its past, including the mass executions that took place here.

At the end of the tour, we'll head back to the original meeting point in Krakow for 2 pm.
