Auschwitz tours

Auschwitz tours will lead you to a place, which is a symbol of genocide, terror and the Holocaust. It is also a memorial of human heroism, solidarity and resistance to crime and terror. But first of all, Auschwitz is a grave hiding ashes of uncountable people who were killed or died here during World War II.
Established by the Nazis in 1940 in the outskirts of Oswiecim, the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp has became a symbol terror, genocide and Holocaust all over the world. This was the largest Nazi WWII concentration camp, where around one a half million people from 28 countries, of which almost a million Jews, perished. It is considered the largest cemetery in the world. Many structures testify to the operation of a huge concentration camp and the extent of the genocide perpetrated by the Nazis: the gas chambers and the crematoria, the Death Wall, the railway ramp, the mass graves, the prisoner barracks and blocks, miles of the barbed wire fence and the watchtowers. In 1947, soon after the war a state Museum was established at the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp (it was a listed as a UNESCO site in 1979).
