About Auschwitz

Auschwitz is the German name for the small town of Oswiecim (40,000 inhabitants) located 60 km West to Krakow. The town centre has a historical centre reminding that in 14-16th centuries Oswiecim was the seat of one Silesian principality. The Slavonic town name’s etymology is “consecration” sharply contrasting with the town’s fate after 1940 when on the territory of defeated Poland the German Nazi leader Heinrich Himmler ordered to convert the Polish army barracks in a punitive camp. It was to became a nucleus of the biggest extermination camp of World War II and the entire human history. The concentration camps areas are preserved as a museum and testimony of Holocaust (90% of the killed were Jews), so that the genocide caused by Nazi Germany is never forgotten. The Auschwitz-Birkenau Holocaust memorial belongs among the most frequently visited places in Poland. It is a place of pilgrimages of Jews, numerous school excursions and hundreds of thousands of travellers who are mostly based in Krakow and undertake to Auschwitz a one-day trip. Getting to Auschwitz Memorial with our assistance is not difficult.
