Guided Auschwitz-Birkenau tours

Guided tour in AUSCHWITZ and BIRKENAU takes approximately 3.5 hours. It starts in Auschwitz - the main part of the complex.

To enter the site of the former Nazi death camp groups are led through the main gate with the infamous ARBEIT MACHT FREI sign. The exhibition is located in authentic, mostly pre-war brick buildings.

Part of the exhibition about mass killing is located in blocks 4 and 5. There visitors can see copies of documents and photographs showing reasons why people of various nations were imprisoned in Auschwitz and deportations of European Jews. One of most horrifying part of this exhibition is hair of women murdered in Birkenau. In the next building there are shoes and other personal belongings seized from people brought to death.

There's also part of exhibition showing everyday camp reality - treatment of people imprisoned in Auschwitz from the moment of arrival. In one of corridors there are enlarged photographs of prisoners taken during the registration procedure.

Block nr 11 was a camp jail. In it's basement there are 28 cells, some of which were used as starvation cells in a period of time. One of rooms in the first floor is a place where Gestapo summary court sentenced innocent people to death. Gestapo victims were shot by the Death Wall. It's reconstruction is in the yard between block 10 and 11.

The only gas chamber that was not destroyed during the war is in Auschwitz. Walking through a room where people were gassed to death and seeing ovens of crematorium where their bodies were burned makes most of visitors speechless.

The tour continues in Birkenau. There visitors are shown the railway track and the platform where Jews deported to the death camp had to undergo selection. Just at the end of tracks there's memorial and ruins of gas chambers and crematoria.

Most of buildings in Birkeanu are destroyed but it's possible to enter couple of those still existing. Seeing how dreadful living and sanitary conditions were it's really hard to believe that anybody could survive a place like this.
