We offer 3,5 hour tour of former Auschwitz - Birkenau concentration camp with a guide.
Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum is a memorial of extermination of hundreds of thousands of people - Jews, Poles, Gypsies and people of other nationalities.
During the years 1940 - 1945 in Auschwitz (Oswiecim) and in neighboring village of Birkenau (Brzezinka) the biggest complex of concentration camps and death camps was created, following the order of Heinrich Himmler. It was here where the Nazis had built a monstrous system of muss murder and destruction, ruthlessly violating human dignity by exploiting labor, horrible living conditions, and cruel "medical" experiments. This is the place where about 1,3 million people had perished in systematic mass-executions - symbol of Holocaust, immeasurable hatred, and inhumane cruelty.
Visitors can see the area and buildings of Auschwitz I, Auschwitz II and Birkenau camps. The tour starts in Auschwitz I camp where in brick barracks there are displayed documents, pictures, charts and models showing the crime against humanity which took place here.
We will visit prisoners' cells, the place of camp music band performances, the roll ground where prisoners were forced to stand still for long hours. We'll see the display in Block 11 called the Death Block, the Death Wall, and what was left of the gas chambers crematoriums.
The next stage of the tour it the Birkenau camp, which we enter by the same railway ramp, where the Nazi SS used to conduct selections and which was the last stop for many of prisoners. We will walk by the Death Gate - the entrance gate and we'll tour wooden and brick barracks where hundreds of people were squeezed. We will continue our tour to the monument commemorating the victims of KL Auschwitz unveiled in 1967, where the commemorating words are sculpted in numerous languages. We will also see the camp bathhouse, where registration, disinfections, and additional selection were were conducted on newly arrived prisoners. Our next stop will be the "White house" and "Red house" - underground gas chambers, and the ruins of bigger gas chambers and crematoria, where thousands of people were murdered and cremated. The crematoria and buildings were blown out by the Nazis in 1945 in an effort to cover up their crimes.
The tour will end in the main SS watchtower, where the whole view of the Birkenau camp will show us the enormity of the "death-complex".
