Walking around Majdanek leaves you with so many thoughts of the poor people who suffered here. The fact that the Russians liberated this camp so quickly means that so much is still intact. We took nearly 4 hours wandering around the site trying to take it all in, as it was July the insides of the huts were unbearably hot... More

Majdanek is an unusually well-preserved concentration camp. They have revamped the walkways of this camp recently. There are now handicapped-accessible trails throughout. I found the exhibit, which takes place within the wooden barracks, to be appropriate in tone. Very powerful is the monument covering the huge mound of crematory ash found on the site. I found this camp more powerful... More

As a History teacher, my work has taken me to Dachau, Terezin, Sachsenhausen, Belsen, Auschwitz, and all have challenges of one sort or the other. Either the site has an unclear narrative or there is too little left to interpret; or it is thronged with coach parties on a whistle stop tour of major cities and tourist traps, gabbling and...

impressive, an unique experience. For those who have been to Auschwitz, this is very different. You walk around by yourself, the exhibitions are smaller but more modern. Totally choking but necessary visit when in Lublin. at least 3 hours are needed for a full visit.

Some places you just have to go to; some things you just have to do, and visiting Majdanek is one of them. Edmund Burke said, "all that is needed for evil to flourish is for good men to do nothing" and I felt I had to bear witness to the history of Majdanek. This concentration camp is intact and you...

I think that everybody should see this place at least one time in their lives. It's very important place in our history. But on the other hand, Auschwitz is a little more interesting.

Impressive visit and feeling grateful to Poland about how they take care of the heritage. Very very good museum. And all is free of charge. And no donationboxes to find. In the end I bought some stuff in the visitorcentre. I appreciated that you could visit the camp on your own, without guide. The informationboards all around are very good.... More

As for the other Nazi concentration camps, this one also needs to be visited with a guide, and not as individuals. That is when we did on this, my second visit. The concentration camp is located – and was located in 1942 – on a major road. It has a complicated complex history, as your guide should explain to you.... More

If one is in Poland, one must visit Majdanek! Unlike Auschwitz, which is replete with tourists, this site bears an eerie heaviness and an agonizing atmosphere representative of the horrors and atrocities committed in that camp. Just the size of the camp is overwhelming. People do not understand the magnitude of these places, as well as that of the Nazi... More

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
