Itinerary of Auschwitz Guided Tour from Kraków:

 

The former Nazi concentration camp - Auschwitz Birkenau is located in the city of Oświęcim, around an hour away from Cracow. The Auschwitz I Camp was established by the Nazi Germans in 1940 in former barracks of the Polish Army. Today its buildings house a Memorial Museum, in which the history of the Second World War, the Holocaust and persecution of ethnic minorities is told. 

 

We will enter blocs number 4 and 5 that contain items found by the Red Army, whose troops liberated the camp on January 27th 1945. These items include: adult and child shoes, glasses, Jewish liturgical parchments, prosthetic limbs, cookware, suitcases, baby care items and human hair, as well as shoe paste from different countries. Continuing, we will see the patio with the Death Wall where prisoners were executed. Then, we will proceed to adjacent bloc 11 with subterranean cells, where in September of 1941 Cyclone B gas was used on six hundred Soviet prisoners of war and 250 Poles.

 

In the cell number 18, Father Maximilian Maria Kolbe spent his last days, after offering to be sentenced to death by starvation instead of a father of a family. The pope prayed in this cell in 1979 and left a commemoratory candle. We will walk through the Counting Square, where prisoners were counted every day. There, the prisoners witnessed the execution of their comrades. Later, we will enter the provisional Crematory number I. It was used by the Nazi Germans until 1943.

 

Transfer to the Auschwitz II Camp. There, we will pass under the Death Gate and enter barracks made from wood and red brick. Furthermore, we shall walk through the selection platform and afterwards we will reach the International Monument. It is dedicated to the Victims, it is situated between the ruins of Crematories I and III. Return to Cracow.
