I had been in touch with Dr. Tomasz Cebulski for over 2 years (pre COVID). I can't begin to elaborate on how helpful he was on planning our trip, arranging hotels..... He also advocated on my behalf to ensure a credit with the requisite travel organization! My son and I took a tour of Auschwitz with Jerzy. It was so incredibly informative and meaningful! We really gained so much from this trip. It was a trip of a lifetime, and we will always be grateful! Thank you Tomasz and Jerzy for creating such an impactful experience for us!

Tomascz was a deeply knowledgeable, empathetic and professional tour guide to Auschwitz. I have no doubt that without him, our experience, and the memories we are left with, would have been so much weaker and less substantive. His historical, political, religious, psychological and administrative insights re the roots, planning, execution and response to the Holocaust gave us an emotional and intellectual experience of humanity's darkest moments. And sadly and realistically, his writings in recent months reminds us all of how hollow phrases like "lest we forget", or "never again" are as we witness another war in the heart of Europe. Many thanks.

Tomasz was an exceptional guide. Visiting Auschwitz is an intense and emotional experience for many people, so it's important to be there under the right conditions. We were very glad to be there with Tomasz, who is extremely knowledgeable, attentive and sensitive. Our tour was very well thought out and extremely in-depth, and Tomasz was very in touch with our needs and interests. I would absolutely recommend!

I am an educator from Atlanta, GA, in the United States where I teach a seminar class on the Holocaust to high school sophomores. For over 10 years now I have been running trips with my students to Auschwitz to study the Holocaust more carefully. Each year I make arrangements to hire a local tour guide who is a scholar/specialist on Auschwitz to guide my students there. Tomasz Cebulski is exceptional, the very best. Auschwitz is a terribly difficult place to guide students. It demands one who is not only an expert on the history of Auschwitz but of the Holocaust itself. Moreover for a place as incomprehensible as Auschwitz (especially for high school students), guides there must be able to convey the meaning of this history, its lessons, without being trite and in a way that challenges us. With his unique sensibility and expert delivery Tomasz Cebulski surpasses both of these requirements. His sincerity reaches me and my students in that place where truth is kept. Their time with Tomasz leaves a lasting impression. He is exactly the type of guide that Auschwitz requires.

Simply wonderful experience. Of course, the visit to Auschwitz is not easy, it is a very delicate part of history that needs to be known and studied, and Tomasz was responsible for guiding our group, not only presenting us with the historical facts, but also bringing a very precise interpretation and critical view, without forgetting respect and sensitivity. I plan to repeat the experience with some family members soon and I will certainly not think twice before contacting Tomasz to help us again.
