The horrors of WW2 and the nazi-regime are very visible in quite some Polish cities and villages. But this particular place really struck a cord. I always imagined those camps being tucked away in a remote spot, far away from everything. But as we drove our car through the suburbs of Lublin, suddenly the highrise appartment blocks gave way to... More

If you ever had any doubts of mans' inhumanity, you won't after a visit to this site. It is not pretty. Well presented and well curated. Not nearly as crowded as Auschwitz or some of the other similar concentration/death camps so you have the time to absorb the presentations. Take the time to walk the entire facility, reflect on the... More

A must see if you are visiting Lublin. The only concentration camp that was captured intact by the Russians in 1944. It is situated a few miles from the town centre so a taxi ride is recommended. Local buses also stop there if you are feeling adventurous.

State Museum at Majdanek. Exhibition is really shocking. I couldn't fall asleep that night after visiting museum. It's also good background to visit Auschwitz. If you want to visit it, you should take some hat or cap, because virtually there's no shoadow to hide from the sunshine. More information, you can find here: http://www.majdanek.eu/index.php?lng=1. I recommend this Museum.

I would not call this the most important place to visit in Lublin - the old town, castle, churches and rural life museum give a much better picture of Lublin's rich history into which the context of this truly horrible episode in history should be placed. That said the site is well presented with a very well curated exhibition with... More

I heard so much about Auschwitz, but choose to also visit Majdanek while I was in Poland, as my grandfather was put in this camp during WWII. I was the only visitor when I went, which was probably partially due to the time of year (January), but it seems from other reviews that it's generally the norm there. For me,... More

Everyone goes to auschwitz but if you make some effort you must also do Belzec and Majdanek. Majdanek is still very much lifelike. Many of the gas chambers and living quarters can be seen. You will get a much better view of how plea ole were treated

Auschwitz is packed with visitors. Majdanek is the total opposite. When we were there, the only other visitors were two nuns. It is a much more personal, individual experience and feels eerie to be in the place all alone. There is a massive memorial that contains the ashes of countless victims in a huge mound next to the crematorium. It... More

ok everyone's experience here will be personal and different. What I can say is that it is easy to get to by trolleybus 156 from Krakow Gate, has well laid out informative signage and is very open so consider the weather when you go.

I've been to a few concentration camps. all of them informative, poignant and shocking. each of them different in their own ways. Ive read some reviews that if you have been to auschwitz, you dont need to go to the other camps. thats not true in my opinion. each concentration camp tells its own horrifying tale. Auschwitz-Birkenau is undoubtedly a... More
