First part of the tour is visiting Auschwitz and Birkenau. During the tour you’ll see the site of the camp: remaining camp buildings and its ruins, residential barracks (including the ruins of the gas chambers and crematoria), several kilometres long camp fence and interior roads and unloading ramp in Birkenau.
Above the entrance to Auschwitz are inscribed the words “Arbeit macht frei” (“Work makes you free”). The camp has been preserved as a memorial, and the prison blocks that survive have been turned into a museum charting the history of the camp and of persecution in wartime Poland.
Auschwitz is synonynous with death, cruelty, the annihilation of the Jews and the Holocaust. It is a massive graveyard. No visitor can leave unmoved.

The Schindler’s Factory. It was founded by the Jews in 1937, and since 1938 located in the building at Lipowa St. 4. In 1939 the new factory owner Oskar Schindler – an industrialist and a member of the Nazi Party – shocked by the mass extermination of the Jewish people, created the famous Schindler’s List, which allowed to transport to a new factory in the Moravia more than 1,100 people saving their lives. The story of Oskar Schindler was described in the book called “Schindler’s Ark” by the Australian novelist Thomas Keneally, which inspired Steven Spilberg to create his famous film “Schindler’s List”. The film was shot, among other places, in the factory at Lipowa St. 4. Last point of the tour will be The Ghetto Walls.
