I think it should be compulsory for everyone to visit this place. From the moment you step under the Arbeit Macht Frei sign to the end of your visit is a horrifying lesson on inhumanity. I can't even begin to describe how it made me feel seeing the blocks, hearing the stories of the medical experiments on men, women and... More

You should go.....so the world never forgets! It's an eerie place to visit, but contains the facts on what happened at Auschwitz. We went to A I and AII.

Visited this place at a peak period so I didn't got the chance to visit the inside part of the museum. But worth it, because its where the biggest event in history happened. Detailed pictures and info of the place were given while walking around. Didn't get to see the proof of criminal but was told that it's filled with... More

This place shows fairly well everything about WWII. It is greatly conserved and is an essential place to visit if you want to understand any concentration camp. Apart from the tragedies that occurred here, this place is truly beautiful. It conserves great part of history and has a huge cultural meaning.

We had a difficult time finding the Synagogue, but I am glad we were able to. It is a very small museum in a small synagogue, but it tell a much bigger story. There are some important archaeological items from prior to the holocaust and pieces dug from the ruins of the Great Synagogue. It was destroyed and the site... More

This is not the place to judge. It's a clear reminder if how deep we humans can fall when we indulge in hate. The current Germany has learned it's lesson and is not likely to make it again, but unfortunately there are today to many areas where people do indulge in hate, often also against Jewish people. Currently the site... More

The only surviving synagogue in Oświęcim is now the Jewish Museum and Synagogue, also known as The Oświęcim Synagogue. Although small, it is filled with the long history of Jews in Oswiecim through artifacts and explanatory placards. Our guide was knowledgeable and because of time constraints (we were late due to road construction and came to closing time) gave us... More
