When visiting Poland, we felt compelled to visit Auschwitz-Birkenau to learn more about the tragedies the Jews and others faced at the hands of the Nazi's during WWII. It is a very moving experience. I would strongly recommend anyone that has the opportunity to visit to do so. If for no other reason, than to learn more of the holocaust and to pay respect for those that suffered or died.

So much history and the whole world should see this and never forget what happened & never let it happen again.

An emotional memorial to the many people that were brutally murdered for an ideal.
A dreadful stain on humanity that we have still not learned the lessons of history.
It is important to remember that there were also many millions of non-Jews that were slaughtered for the Nazi ideal and Auschwitz makes that very clear.
What struck us was the fact that there are actually three camps at Auschwitz and that the whole area commandeered was over 40 square kilometres.
A guided tour of Auschwitz I is a good idea for you to see the Blocks in turn and learn more of their history but then you should allow more time to walk around at a slower pace to better absorb the enormity of what happened there. We spent four hours here but felt that we could have stayed longer.
You should aim to get there as early in the day as possible, as it gets very busy with visitors by late morning.
Auschwitz II - Birkenau is over 1km away from Auschwitz I and has the iconic railway approach seen in many representations of the camp. The area is VAST and will take 2/3 hours to walk around. Chllingly stark, it also houses the remains of the infamous crematoria.
Very emotional but a very important memorial.
Sad that some visitors consider the taking of "selfies" to be appropriate in a place like this.

There’s no words really to describe how you will feel when you visit. The sheer number of lives lost are well known around the world, however when you see the magnitude of what people went through it will take your breath away.
We had a guided tour and honestly the lady who took us round was amazing with her knowledge.
There are areas you can’t take any pictures however I couldn’t get my head around people taking “selfies” inside an actual gas chamber. I would definitely recommend visiting here. It’s a massive part of history and puts a lot of things into perspective
