Warsaw: Majdanek & Lublin Tour

Majdanek was a German Nazi Concentration and Extermination Camp established in occupied Poland in the outskirts of Lublin in 1941 by decision of Heinrich Himmler – main architect of Holocaust. Although it was designed to keep mainly Russian Soviet war prisoners and use them as free workforce, it was modified many times and finally in 1943, Majdanek was turned into death camp where nearly 360 000 people lost their lives.
