About
Visit the site of the most famous escape of World War II from a German prisoner-of-war camp that went down in history as “The Great Escape”. In a tiny compound 600 men worked for a year in secrecy on the tunnels named Tom, Dick, and Harry. Finally, on the night of 24th of March 1944, 76 prisoners managed to escape from the camp through the Harry tunnel but soon after 73 were recaptured during the chase. Outraged, Hitler ordered to shoot dead fifty of them which was an appalling abrogation of the Geneva Convention. Find out more about those dramatic events at the Museum of Allied POW Camps in Żagań, visit the grounds of Stalag Luft III and the memorial to the brave airmen who paid the highest price for an escape they considered a soldier's duty.

Brilliant Trip if you like the film.
Mar 2020
Had a really good trip with Mateusz to visit Stalag Luft 3 museum and the north compound where Tom, Dick and Harry were dug. We got a private tour which was good as Mateusz is very informed and answered lots of questions that we had. The museum is small but worth it and you are then taken to the site itself, where there is a marking on the floor where the tunnel Harry started and ended. I would highly recommend both the trip, if you like your WW2 sites but more importantly I would highly recommend Wroclaw sightseeing tours.

Totally recommend taking this ‘Great Escape’ tour with Martin. Martin is extremely reliable and professional and his vast historical knowledge of WW2 made this excursion so interesting. If you have any interest at all in war history or the story of the great escape, you should definitely do this visit with Martin!

Excellent trip to a fascinating and little-visited piece of history.
May 2019 • Friends
The tour guide was by far the best I've ever travelled with. He was very informative and had a thorough knowledge of the location (Stalag III, memorial & railway station). Pickup was on time & journey was about 2 hrs in a comfortable people carrier. Wear good walking shoes & might need insect repellent during the summer. It was such a good tour & yet not many people travel from Wroclaw - they should it's well worth it!
