Memorial and Museum Auschwitz-Birkenau
Famous as one of the most notorious concentration camps and gravest place of mass murder, Auschwitz and Birkenau emanates an eerie calm which sends down shivers in the tourist’s body. At its peak the whole complex of the Auschwitz death camp was a deadly prison to some 150,000 inmates that were being either murdered outright or starved and worked to death. If you have read Mien Kampf and wish to dig deeper into the Nazi psyche, Auschwitz and Birkenau is a must visit historic site.
Krakow-Auschwitz At Auschwitz concentration camps, the atrocities against deported Jews changed the definition of human monstrosity forever. Millions of Jews were gassed to death. The railway tracks, barbed wires, personal belongings of the victims(there's fabric made of human hair!) all narrate horrifying tales of Nazi cruelty. In Krakow, synagogues were destroyed, Jews rounded up. But one man rekindled faith in humanity - Oskar Schindler. He saved nearly 1,200 Jews by providing them employment in his factory (remember, Steven Spielberg's Schindler's List?)
