Overview

We suggest you to start this tour at Kazimierz – the former Jewish district – to understand the Jews, their religion, customs and culture and their role in Europe. A visit to Kazimierz presents a unique opportunity to see how the Jewish community was organized and how it coexisted with Catholics for more than 600 years. Our guides will tell you not only about Jews who lived in Krakow, but also about their history in general, which will allow you to understand the tragedy of Holocaust. We will also show you the places that create the special atmosphere of Kazimierz now, and try to explain why Poland without the Jewish minority is a different country. Afterwards, you will visit Auschwitz-Birkenau, the former Nazi concentration camp. Auschwitz concentration camp is situated about 70 km from Krakow – our journey will take us about 1h 15 min. The tour begins with a 17-minutes documentary about the history and the liberation of the camp. Then an expert guide shows you the gas chamber, the crematorium and the exhibition in some of the surviving prison blocks. We continue to Birkenau to see this largest of all Nazi extermination camps. Here we see the entrance gate known as the gate of Death and the wooden barracks.

Auschwitz was chilling and heartbreaking. Still can't get my head around how that was allowed to happen. It is a heavy experience but a must do. Schindler's Enamel factory also provided an excellent account of the build up to the war, Poland's fate during and...More

If your going here it's best to book a tour guide, they offer more information, but if you like to do solo learning at you own leisure , it's a place for all, really amazing how it's presented, we truly enjoyed, discovering history.

Very interesting and well guided tour a bit long but worthwhile. More about the occupation of Krakow than Oskar Schindeler, but make time if you can and try to understand how these decent people suffered.

Well worth a visit to remind yourself how cruel and murderous man can be to each other. It beggars belief what the people of Europe went through under Natzi Germany rule.
