It's really hard even writing this review. I knew about the events that took place here before going but I had no idea of the actual scale of the place. I would recommend 2 days as birkenau is a massive site. It is worth the visit but be prepared as its extremely hard to visit. I'm a relatively big guy and even I cried walking round at the horrors that took place here.
I advise you to visit the museum only with a guide. Ours was wonderful, without him I would not have been able to fully feel the atmosphere of this place. There are also several bookstores near the museum, where you can buy books in different languages.
Auswitch and Birkenau. It was a touching experience. Paul, the driver, told us a lot about history, very interesting. We had a little book explaining the place as well as the guide.
I recommend. Perfect organization and contact with the operator. Due to the pandemic, there were few people in the museum. It was a terrible time, I hope it never happened again.
Emotions cannot be compared with either books or films. But you should only visit this place with a guide. His stories touched much more than the museum itself.
