Full description
Get picked up from your accommodation in Warsaw in the early morning. Meet your driver and climb into a private car or minivan, then set off for the Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration Camp.

When you arrive at the site, you will embark on a 3.5-hour guided group tour of Auschwitz and Birkenau with a guide speaking your chosen language. Start in the Auschwitz concentration camp and learn about how it was established by German Nazis on the outskirts of the town Oswiecim in 1940. After the war, the camp was turned into a museum displaying evidence of the genocide. Block no. 11, known as the Death Block, was where people were murdered at the Wall of Death. Outside the camp, see the gas chamber, where 70,000 people were killed in 1940-1943. Watch a film made after the liberation of the camp which is shown in various language version within the museum.

After this, head over to the Birkenau section of the concentration camp. Discover how, in 1941, 3 km from Oswiecim, in the former village of Brzezinka, the German Nazis established a new camp called Auschwitz II Birkenau. In 1942-1945, approx. 1.5 million people lived and died here. Most of them (90%) were Jews, others were Poles, Gypsies, Russians and prisoners from 28 countries of Europe, people of all nationalities and political and religious persuasions. Since 1944, transports of prisoners from all over the continent entered directly through the Gate of Death. In 1979, Auschwitz – Birkenau Concentration Camp was listed as a UNESCO World Culture and National Heritage Site.

Très bien organisé , très bon chauffeur! Visite trop rapide ....

A recommander ! Mais il faut savoir que la visite se fais presque au pas de course ce qui est assez dommage et qui laisse pas le temps nécessaire pour absorber les tragédies d‘ Auschwitz!! Il faudra préciser que c est ainsi et proposer une alternative pour une visite moins limitée dans le temps !
