Full description
During this trip you will get to visit 2 very unique places and experience the fascinating region of Lower Silesia. With its turbulent past, interesting culture and incredibly beautiful landscape, it is one of the most visited "voivodeships" (provinces) in Poland.

First up is the Gross-Rosen Museum in Rogoznica – the biggest Nazi concentration camp in Lower Silesia, with particularly harsh conditions and tough labour in the quarries. The motto of the place was "Vermichtung durch Arbeit" (extermination through labour). Around 40,000 prisoners died there including Poles, Jews, Russians, French and Hungarian.

The second part of the trip will be spent at the Churches of Peace in Jawor – one of the largest wattle and daub religious buildings in Europe, built in the old Silesia in the middle of the 17th-century. This place is a manifestation of the desire for religious freedom and a rare sign of Lutheran ideology connected with the Catholic Church. Situated outside of the city walls, the churches were made of wood or clay in less than a year and are currently on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.
