Auschwitz Birkenau Tour

From  67 EUR / 73 USD per person 

The gate at Auschwitz I camp.

Inscription  "Arbeit macht frei" (Ger. work makes you free)

- a paraphrase of a quote from the Gospel of John: "... the truth will set you free".

 

Nazi propaganda used that slogan in the 30's in programs to combat unemployment.
Later, it was used at the entrance gates to several Nazi concentration camps (next to Auschwitz and Dachau also in the Gross-Rosen).

The gas chamber in Auschwitz I camp.
From the testimony of the commandant of KL Auschwitz:

 

"Mothers with laughing or crying children went to the gas chambers. (...)

Smaller children usually cried when undressing in such extraordinary circumstances,

but when the mother or members of Sonderkommando friendly spoke to them,

they got calm himself and playing or teasing entered the chambers with toys in the hands."

Ramp with wagon at Auschwitz II-Birkenau.


Testimony of eyewitness of selection on the ramp:

"We didn't really know what was going on.

They told us that men must stand on the right side with children over 14 years of age, and women and younger children on the left.

Prisoners, who walked among us, were saying to women:

"give the baby to grandmother and you will go to work."

And they were doing so.

My cousin gave his children to grandmother.

Women began to go forward, we were standing and after a while, suddenly, they were gone.

I stood there with a 12-year-old son. Suddenly we started to move.

 

I came to some man - I do not know who he was. He was dressed in the uniform of the German army. He was very elegant. (...).

He looked at me and asked: "How old is the boy?"

At this point, I could not lie.

I said: "He is 12 years old."

And then he said: "And where is his mother?"

I said: "She went to the left side."

And then he said to my son: "Run to mom".

 

I went to the right side and I could see how he run. (...).

I walked away and I did not see them anymore."

Gate of Death at Auschwitz II-Birkenau.
It served as the main guardhouse and vantage point of the camp.

 

On the tower placed strong reflectors, which were illuminated at night columns of prisoners going to the gas chambers.

 

Doomed Jews were bringing by railway transports in freight wagons, although some transports from Western Europe were arriving to the camp in normal passenger wagons.

 

The number of deaths reached nearly 1.1 million people, including 960 thousand of Jews, or nearly 90%.

Gallows in Auschwitz I camp where hanged, in 1947, the former commandant - Rudolf Hoess.
Captured after the war by the British.

Judged in Warsaw by the Polish Supreme National Tribunal.

Before his death, he converted and confessed.

In a last statement, he wrote:

 

"In prison solitude I came up with bitter understanding how serious crimes I committed on humanity. (...)

For my responsibility I pay with my life. May God forgive me once my actions. (...)".
