You must visit here if in Poland. The history is sobering. The focus is kept on the people and what happened there. Even knowing what happened there before visiting the experience is surreal. I would recommend getting a guide. They are knowledgeable, have a passion for what they do and speak clearly.

It's something strange, disturbing, this place. As we still feel courtyards, the corridors of the pavilions, the cries and suffering of those who lodged there. Today it is a museum, but it is still a place of reflection on what we can do and commit against ourselves

I was there with my Poland friend and for me, the experience was unforgettable. You fell the pain...you walk where they walked...truly unforgattable. Everything is really educational and you learn a lot of new things about what was really happening there. All the houses are showing excellent exhibition. I recommend for everybody who wants to know, really understand and go... More

We visited this attraction as a group of 7 after our tour of Auschwitz and Birkenau, having seen a sign for it as we were leaving. Our sat-nav proved very useful to get us there. It was getting late in the afternoon and we didn't find it until about 5pm. A quick question by one of our party discovered that... More

I've expected more when I've came to this place. Every thing is ok, we can see the old photos and listen stories about jews familes. However I wanted a little bit more which would express a character of this place

Hard to do this trip but essential when in Kraków. It will haunt you. It is important for all to see what hatred can do. Still going on everywhere in the world. Easy to fall prey to the isms....

Important to know history, this is a place where history still alive. Must be seen by everybody. The barracks and the objects still well conserved. Unforgettable.

Although it was really cold (and it snowed on Monday) I bet is is chilling on a sunny day. It is an experience that I think everyone should share. The deniers have some explaining to do to cover their stupid stance. Do they expect people to believe the Germans built this after the war ??? The Auschwitz complex was started... More
