Auschwitz - Birkenau 2018

Auschwitz - Birkenau 2017 Visit

Sunday 15th October 2017

Auschwitz and Birkenau

 

Following our visits in 2013 and 2015 we have decided to operate a third trip in 2017.

Auschwitz is known all over the world as a symbol of terror, genocide and holocaust. During the Second World War it was the largest concentration camp of Nazi Germany, established in the suburbs of the city of Oswiecim (Auschwitz in German), approximately 60 kilometres west of Krakow. Auschwitz and Birkenau the two camps were liberated in January 1945. After the war, the Polish government decided to restore Auschwitz-Birkenau and turn it into a museum honouring the victims of Nazism. Now it is part of the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites. Our tour will also include a service of remembrance.
