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

A much smaller/ better preserved trip than to auschwitz.a short bus ride from the town centre in Lublin and free to visit. We were able to visit in under 3 hours and very impressed with the exhibitions and displays, as they gave a strong insight into prisoner life. would recommend to anyone, as much as you can recommend a place...

Majdanek is one of my favorite places to visit in Lublin.I would never forget the specific smell of the old wooden '' barak's'' where the prisoners were kept. On my way out I spotted one pheasant and herd of 5 young deers, walking close to crematorium.Were they innocent souls of the mordered people?

No words can describe the feelings while paying our respects there, I would ever describe Majdanek as an attraction but we should all experience this place and we should never forget...

The Red Army liberated this camp, before the Nazis could erase the evidence. Even the use of the camp by soviet soldiers and some later devastation, left the death camp more intact than any other Nazi camp. Majdanek is less on the beaten track, less crowded and therefore more befitting for personal and small group experience. A very hard place.

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!
