I have seen several former concentration camps, but this one was the best preserved. Marcian was the perfect tour guide, as he had in-depth knowledge of the camp as well as the political history surrounding it. I was surprised to learn that the camp was preserved, in part, because the Soviets used it as a prison after repelling the Germans. The Polish people have a long and proud history of defending themselves against aggressors. This was a powerful reminder of how humanity needs to stand together.
Excellent tour; great conversation; tasty, local food; and highly recommended.
