I can't give this place a rating. There is nothing left to see. My father was shot at by the commandant of this camp during the Nazi Holocaust and I went to retrace his footsteps with a film crew to find nothing but a field. I found the commandant's villa and the broken Jewish headstones, many of which were used... More

The must see huge soviet era monument oversees the pit in which 8,000 Jews were slaughtered by shooting during the period that the camp (in Schindler's list) was open. The bodies were latter exhumed and cremated as the Nazis liquidated the camp and its evidence as they retreated. The silence cries for those lost.

After 70 years the beauties of nature have taken over this horrible place depicted in Schindler's List movie. Now lovers neck where people were murdered and suffered, people walk their dogs where Jews died. But there are still signs of the old Jewish cemetery here whose stones were used as paveent by the Nazis, and there are signs of the... More

The former camp has only ruins remained, but you can have a walk around. Parts of the fence are still standing, the mine , the buildings down there are off limits for visitors but worth to have a look at least. The worst part what makes you feel very uncomfortable is to visit Amon Goeth's house in a street close... More

We accidentally found the signboard from the Under the Eagle Pharmacy to Plaszow. The path led us to Krakus Mound which had a good view of the old town and also Liban Quarry (which was in the movie Schindler's List). The signboard at the Pharmacy only led us to Jerozolimska which appeared like a normal residential estate until we were... More

I have made the trip here twice now, there isn't much to see but in some ways ithat can prove even more horrific when left to one's own thoughts and imagination. Walking through this entire area brings about a true sense of grief. There are children laying flowers and people standing gazing in silence, as well as folk walking their... More

Never, should the countless thousands of people be forgotten. The camp is vast and there's really not much to see except for the grounds with an exception of a few scattered markers. Why quite empty, it is still very important to see this place. On the edges of the camp, you will find the "Gray House" and the "Red House,... More

It feels wrong to 'rate' Plaszow as an 'attraction' but I have given it five stars due to its significance and the beautiful memorials. People have said that it's hard to find different points of interest but the steep hill along Jerozolimska Street (on the right) gives you a clear view of the area - just a bit of a... More

After getting vexed with the crowds at Auschwitz, i made the trek to Plaszow. The former concentration camp, is now almost like a public park. Just people walking their dogs and cyclists. You would not know its former history if it wasnt for the few signs there. I visited the famous grey house and the red house where Amon Goeth... More
