Auschwitz-Birkenau was the largest concentration and extermination camp during World War II. There are three camps. Auschwitz I, also known as the administrative center, Auschwitz II, the actual extermination camp and Auschwitz III, the working camp. Auschwitz was initially used to hold Polish prisoners, but eventually used to kill 1.1 million people. Mostly European Jews, but also gypsies, Jehovah’s witnesses, handicapped, homosexuals, political opponents and Soviet prisoners.

It’s almost unbelievable that, at the end of the war, the SS tried to destroy the camp. They burned the archives and blew up crematoria. As if the world could forget the horrible things that happened over there during the war.


The tour of Auschwitz lasts about 6 hours. During the during you are able to visit the permanent exhibition, were you can take a look at the suitcases and shoes the Nazi’s collected and film and video material. It is also an option to go into the barracks and gas chambers. Please do remember that there is no lunch break during the tour.

Within the museum you are allowed to make photos. After the tour you will be brought back to the point where we picked you up.
