Was hard to find when going it alone so went a second time with tour guide , although not much to see you can get a feeling of what it must have been like esp if you have watch the movie Schindlers list, you can also go look at the commandants home just alone from the entrance . Shame there... More

We walked & walked,then out of frustration hired a golf cart tour to take us,this to me is a cemetery,a place that should be respected & the lives lost here shouldn't be forgotten or felt less important,I'm amazed that this gets no attention or love,very sad to see dogs being walked & beer bottles & weeds over growing,after Schindler's list...

Plaszow is a difficult place to explore unless you are familiar with the area. The guide books warn about 'straying onto land you're not meant to be on' so I hired a guide for an afternoon to take me to Pomorska Street (Gestapo Headquarters) and Plaszow. Asked about guides / tours at the local Tourist Information office. My guide turned... More

The camp itself seemed to just became a park. If you weren't aware it once was a concentration camp you probably will just think it is just a park. Not much details on the signs. It just tells you that you have reached the grounds of the camp. Walk along the pathway and you will see the monument. The place... More

I have heard the name "Plaszow Concentration Camp" but had no idea were, what happened there, and were it was. the huge Memorial stone, the faces, the pain which is seen threw their eyes - tells everything about the past.

Amazing place! Nobody knows about it, even locals who live just few blocks away. It looks like forgotten park and when you realize that it's the area of concentration camp you are shocked. Look at the people with dogs or them who have a beer here. This is the real example what's happening with history. It's getting forgotten. The real... More

We visited the place on New Year’s Eve, being there almost alone. What is really a pity is the lack of appropriate information in other languages than Polish. There’s just one board which is hard to be read even if you speak Polish and I’m sure they have plenty of visitors from other countries there (e.g. from Israel). This is... More

It was sad to see how much was gone, and how much people seem to have forgotten already. There is only a simple stone monument and rectangle areas of mulch.

We saw a sign saying 2km but was near a tram station so we decided to take a tram to Plaszow instead of walking, the concentration camp is not near the end tram stop. We followed the directions then which were on trip adviser and ended back up in the Jewish quarter! So we took a taxi which was nearly... More

I was set on making the walk from the Schindler factory to the Plaszow camp. I wanted to see the distance these workers were walking everyday. it is quite a long haul. When we got to Plaszow, there isn't really anything left. The house of Goeth is still standing, it is a little past the main entrance. The gray house... More
