Lublin: Majdanek Concentration Camp Tour

The German concentration camp on the outskirts of Lublin, called Majdanek was established in October 1941. It was initiated by Heinrich Himmler’s decision. Initially it was intended for forced labor. Later, during Operation Reinhard, the camp was used to kill people on an industrial scale. Victims came from nearly 30 countries. It is assumed that about 78,000 people died here. The rapidly approaching Russian Soviet troops in July 1944, forced the Germans to evacuate quickly. Due to this fact, the camp infrastructure survived nearly intact. Our professional guide will show you this difficult chapter in the history of the city.
