Full description
Birkenau Camp was the largest German Nazi Concentration Camp, which was established in the year 1941 on the outskirts of Oświęcim (Auschwitz). That is a place, in which millions of people died from the hands of the Nazis. The memory of the victims of this most horrific crime in the history of humanity survived as a result of having secured the former Camp premises, where a Museum was created, and owing to the shocking accounts of those who survived the imprisonment period.

One of the victims of the war tragedy was Marian Kołodziej – a former prisoner of KL Auschwitz-Birkenau, nr 432, who was brought to the Camp by the first transport. The exhibition of his unusual sketches documenting the conditions of life in the Camp is one of the most stirring testimonies to the atrocities committed by German Nazis during World War II.

After pickup in Krakow, drive to the Exhibition 'Negatives of Memory. Labyrinths'. Watch a documentary film about the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp during your journey. Upon arrival, take a Guided Tour of the Exhibition 'Negatives of Memory. Labyrinths'.

After that visit the Altejudenrampe (old unloading ramp) located near the Birkenau camp. Then, receive a map with the most important information about the Auschwitz II-Birkenau camp and spend between 1 hour and 1.5 hours exploring the site on your own.

See the carriages that transported prisoners, the barracks where they slept, the ruins of the gas chamber, and visit the memorial to the camp’s victims. Take a break to consume lunch at a restaurant (included). Stop at the site of the Auschwitz III-Monowitz camp on your way back to Kraków.
