This one-day tour from Warsaw regularly leaves people speechless and compassionate for all those who were brought to Auschwitz–the place where people experienced inhumane living conditions, backbreaking labour, starvation, and death. More than a million prisoners were hauled off to Auschwitz but only a handful made it out alive. After the war, thanks to the survivors' endeavour, the Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum was established to constitute the most recognizable symbol of the Holocaust in the world. See the subhuman living conditions, the piles of personal belongings, gas chambers, and many more harrowing places. Learn the history that cannot be forgotten.
