This was a somber tour but important to keep the history of the holocaust alive. The barracks have mostly been gutted and filled with displays, photographs, narratives and quotes from prisoners. There are even displays of thousands of prisoners' shoes. The gas chambers and crematorium...More

Shocking. It needs to be seen, don’t skip the displays, read and understand. Amazing this all happened next to the main road into Lublin. Sadly most of it has been over restored. Repaired. Some is still original. Why I do not know. Entry is free,...More

Majdanek was a concentration camp during WWII. It is a place that anyone visiting Lubllin must see. It is a piece of history that teaches us about the consequences of hatred and indifference to suffering.

It is imperative to visit not only the Jews, but every civilized person who arrives will not be able to ignore the quiet and space of the extermination camp. The chilling experience begins to get a special feeling that you see the guard towers and...More
