This camp is unusual in that it's not highly developed. Instead, it's located in a very large field behind a housing development just outside Krakow, and I highly recommend it. It featured in "Schindler's List" as the work camp and quarry where Jews were sent...More

Easy access via tram, approx.2.5 km fromy Schindler's museum. Although much has been destroyed a walking path with descriptions of what once was is thought provoking. The house of Amon Goëth. SS comendant is still there and being renovated, as is the Grey house that...More

Plaszow concentration camp in Podgorze is a little bit forgotten place but really worth visiting. Somehow quiet and peaceful, somehow terrible reminder of near history. Take a tram to a Wielicka street and hop off after driving below the railway. It takes some time to...More

It's sad when you know that such a pretty place was once the location of an unimaginable horror. The tall memorial draws you in to see what is behind it. There isn't much there, except some information boards, but they are well worth reading.

We visited the site on a beautiful sunny afternoon. You’d be forgiven for thinking that you’re walking through a country park, or similar, as the landscape now is quite pleasant. It’s sobering to think that such barbaric & cruel acts were committed here & that...More
