Poznan: Tour to Auschwitz & Birkenau

This largest German concentration camp established in 1940 near the town of Oswiecim in occupied part of southern Poland, became synonymous with death, cruelty, suffering and annihilation. It is estimated that nearly 1,5 million prisoners lived here and died between 1942 – 1945 what makes Auschwitz the largest cemetery in the world. Amongst the victims of all different nationalities and religious persuasions, around 90% of them were Jews. Today it is possible to visit this horrible place because the area of the camp was turned into a museum which is visited by millions of people every year from all over the world. Despite the distance from Poznan, we guarantee that you will not regret it. This is a place which you simply must see while being in Poland.
