Full description
Journey from Krakow to the town of Oświęcim to explore one of the darkest chapters in Europe's history. Tour the Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum with an English-speaking guide who will provide you with a sensitive tour giving you insight into life in the camps and the horrors that occurred during their years of operation. 

Enter the site for a more intimate and poignant experience. Hear how more than 1.5 million people were sent to the camps by the Nazi regime and put to death during World War II. Founded in 1947, the memorial was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979 for the important story it relates.

Pay your respects to the victims of the Holocaust and learn more about the genocide that shook the world. Hear details about life at the camp, where original features, along with personal possessions that belonged to the prisoners, are a reminder of the horrors that should never happen again.
