Wroclaw: Tour to Auschwitz & Birkenau
Take part in our private tour to Auschwitz & Birkenau from Wroclaw. This is the place where Germans established their largest concentration and extermination camp during World War 2. Approximately 1 to 1,5 million people of 28 nationalities were slaughtered here, 90% of which were Jews. It is considered to be the biggest cemetery in the entire world. The camp has been preserved as a memorial and the prison blocks that have survived, were turned into a museum showing the history of the camp and of persecution in Poland during the war. In 1979, the camp territory was included on the UNESCO World Heritage List as a historic site. Both Auschwitz and Birkenau camps are open for visitors and both are included in the program of our tour from Wroclaw.
