Details of this tour

More than 1.1 million souls from many different nationalities and religions perished in these concentration and extermination camps at the hands of the grotesque Nazi regime. During the Auschwitz-Birkenau Tour we will give you all details.

Our trip to Auschwitz explores this tragic and epic stain on mankind.

Forced labor, hunger, abuse, gas chambers and despair were the daily struggle for millions of men, women, and children in this, the largest concentration complex in human history. Consider this for more than a second, the sheer terror experienced by all of the prisoners upon their arrival at Birkenau train station, disembarking after countless hours of traveling in the worst of conditions, then forcibly marched to a camp where most of them were exterminated in the most loathsome and inhumane manner possible.

Toward the end of the war, the Nazi authorities tried to destroy the evidence. There were more than 7,000 members of the SS responsible, in part or in whole, for this Holocaust, and it wasn’t until January of 1945 that the camps were finally liberated. After the war, the Polish Government restored the camps to their World War II condition, eliminating any possibility that the world might forget what the Nazis did here.

Auschwitz was named a UNESCO World Heritage site and is visited by millions of tourists each year. We explore Auschwitz-Birkenau on this tour with reverence as explorers into the dark history of the Holocaust and the Nazi occupation of Poland. More than 40 camps and sub-concentration camps form the complex that operated for a harrowing three plus years.

These wretched camps that were designed to house only 125 prisoners, ironically served as a processing center for the extermination of 9 out of 10 Jews during the war.
