This memorial to the deaths of Jewish and other nationalities by the German Nazis in WW2 is beautifully preserved and a poignant reminder that this must never be allowed to happen again anywhere in the world. It is a stark reminder of man inhumanity to man. I will not forget this visit!

A journey to the past, which never should be forgotten. Majdanek's is standing testimony of the Nazi mass murder and atrocities committed during the WWII. Many nationalities perished in the Majdanek creamatory , including Jews, Russian, Polish, Gipsy... Majdanek was liberated by the red army in 1944, taking Nazis by suprise, hence many afterfacts were not destroyed ( as in... More

I really liked the museum if you can enjoy this sort of experience at all. You must see this and when you do, it gives you chills and you leave with a heavy heart - at least I did.

A bonus of this site compared to A-B near Krakow is that it is near a city center, reachable by tram, open all year (some exhibits only April-October), and free. All the other stuff you can read below. Very well done; the grounds are huge and sobering. In the mausoleum, one confronts the actual ashy/rocky remains of the the people... More

I was a study tour of the camps in Poland for uni/work and made a special trip from Warsaw just to see this camp. On the day that arrived it was bitter cold, windy and basically uncomfortable. Which would set the tone for the rest of the day as well. It is on the edge of Lublin proper and literally... More

This was hands down one of the most emotional places I have ever been to. There is countless history on these grounds. I went in April of 2014 and although the place itself is free of charge, we had a tour guide meet us and did a ~3 hour tour (about $75 well worth it). There is so much to... More

This is the best museum in Lublin. It's free of charge and you can wander there for free. Very much important history about concentration camps and the horrors of second world war. You can see how people lived there, how they worked there, how they were tortured and how they died. There is even a huge pile of human ashes... More

It's great that they're trying to preserve the place and make it a main touristic point! Also, you can get for free inside but if you want a tourguide, you need to book before (I guess this will be paid). It's a place worth visiting and it has a lot to tell.

Although it was a very cold and windy day...it totally worthed the price and time. This place is mandatory if you are in Lublin. It touched my hearth so much, you can feel the terrifying times when it happened. For this reason do not go with kids.

This is a Camp where Hitler ordered all the Jewish people to be killed through Gas, execution and other means. Children's shoes are still evident in this place and executor rooms ect.. will still give you frightening experience. If you do go there, don't take children with you as they will be terrified. And take plenty of water as there... More
