Half-Day Auschwitz Birkenau Excursion
Step Into the History of the Holocaust and Liberation

Visit the most infamous place of the holocaust, the extermination camp of Auschwitz-Birkenau. With a knowledgeable Englis-speaking guide, you will tour the grounds and buildings of the camp, exploring the history of the Nazi occupation of Poland and the terrible deeds that took place here.
Perhaps the strongest symbol of the holocaust, the most well-known acts of genocide took place here. During the war, the Nazi's killed over a million people, mainly Jews as well as Poles, Gypsies, and members of other nationalities.
The tour begins with a 15-minute documentary film about the liberation of the camp, then a local museum-guide will show you exhibitions in some of the surviving prison blocks, the gas chamber, and the crematorium.
After a short break you continue to Birkenau, where you can go up to the watchtower above the entrance gate to see the view of the biggest Nazi extermination camp.
