Poland unforgettable memories

Selected Attraction


"Arbeit macht frei" (Work gives freedom) is written on the old gate of the Auschwitz concentration camp.
The silence shouts here. Over a milion people were killed here during the second world war. Treated with cruelty, they were working and dying under inhumane conditions, mainly in gas chambers. Nowadays few buildings and a museum in this calm place only remind what happened nearly seventy years ago, what was the tragedy directed by German Nazis.
Auschwitz is one of thirteen UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Poland. In 2007, the World Heritage Committee of UNESCO officially declared the camp at Oswiecim as the Auschwitz - Birkenau German Nazi Concentration and Extermination Camp (1940-1945).
