It touch your heart. Very sad place as its nazi- camp from II WORLD WAR. Take your time as its lots to see and hear from tourists guides. Historic place. There is two impressive monuments. One of them with ashes.

This place will leave a deep impression upon you be it the first of this type of memorial you've been to or one of many. The fact that some of it is intact does give it more of an impact. I decided to have a guided individual tour and my English speaking guide was very patient and well informed. I... More

Very moving exhibition. I travelled by train from Warsaw to visit this site and found it very worthwhile. It was very informative and parts of it were disturbing but it brings history to life and makes you wonder about the monsters who created these camps.

it's not a matter of "like" or "dislike", it's a matter to see history of the second world war and not let it happen again!

Really brings it home how the holocaust affected peoples lives. Some of the exhibitions make you wonder how any human being could do these things to their fellow man. Really sad but worth visiting to see just how badly the prisoners were treated.

You of course are lost for words. The entry underneath the monstrous stone block in order to feel the uncontrolled descent, only to climb up the steep stairs - is essential.

The concentration camp doesn't seem to be it, maybe because it is near the town of Lublin and it is sorrounded by house and roads. But even it is a small concentration camp compared to Auswhitz and others you can see the terrible place, the showers where a lot of Jewish and other deportees where deprivated of every personal objects(...

This concentration camp is established on the outskirts of the city of Lublin and is just like Auschwitz. Majdanek receives much less attention than other concentration camps such as Auschwitz or Dachau, but keeps inside the same horrors and the same testimonials. In this concentration camp, there are many guides that have a great linguistic skills and can speak many... More

Majdanek (pronounced My-danek) is the best preserved of all the concentration camps in Poland, so it is worth a visit. In addition it seems that it had the best records of who was there and was killed. Of course it is a moving experience and should be compbined with a visit to the Grodska gate museum (nn theatre)
