You need to understand the history and true meaning of this place. For those who say "not exciting", "boring city" and so on, You don't understand this place. It's not a fun park. It's really deep historical feeling. If You don't know the history and don't like it, don't go there, This place shows reality and brutality of this historical... More

An incredibly haunting and lonely place. I dont think any of us who visit this place can ever really fully grasp the horrors that happened here. It is an absolute must visit for any age or culture. I believe this place is invaluable in reminding us of the terrible cruelty that mankind is capable of inflicting upon its own..

I traveled to Auschwitz with two of my female friends. We are all between 26-29 years old. Always wanted to visit this place so when I managed to visit krakow I knew one day I need for a trip to Auschwitz. Traveling is a bit painful as if you don't know anything about krakow it's hard to get there. I... More

This is NOT the Auschwitz concentration camp; this is a museum in the restored synagogue of the adjacent city. This is a very simple restored synagogue with an attached simple museum. If you're in this little Polish town, you should visit.

It's one of those places where everyone has to visit at least once in their life just to see what people went through. Was definitely worth going. an eye opener.

The synagogue is located very near to the Catholic Church with the tall spire. Pre-war the Synagogue stood and still stands on a market sq. little has changed as can be seen on the old photos on display inside the renovated museum. This gives an account of Jewish life in the small town of Oswiecim during the 19th century and... More

Seniors rate for entry was 7 zlotys. There was one main hall with various exhibits and a couple of little rooms off the main hall. I didn't know what to expect from a synagogue and it was very plain and the seats didn't look at all comfortable. The displays were basic but if you were Jewish would have had additional... More
