Private Trips from Prague to Auschwitz:

This is not an entertaining and funny trip but definitely an important one.

You will be overwhelmed not by the beauty of its buildings and interesting history, but you will wonder why such a horror could happen not so long ago.

The suburb of a former Polish town Oswiecim was chosen for establishing the Concentration Camp Auschwitz in 1940.

Until 1942 the majority of prisoners were the Poles and Soviet POWs.

From early 1942 to October 1944 the camp was functioning as the largest center for the immediate, mass killing of Jews deported here in order to fulfill the plan of wiping out all European Jews.

Many well known people like Viktor Frankl or Elie Wiesel wrote about their experiences in Auschwitz and it soon became a dominant symbol of the Holocaust.

Not long after the war it was turned into the Auschwitz State Museum and it serves as a memorial to the victims of the Holocaust and Nazism and as a harsh reminder of modern European history.

Auschwitz is made of two parts. Auschwitz I and Auschwitz II – Birkenau which served as the major place of the Nazi´s Final Solution to the Jewish Question.

From 1942 to 1944 almost 1,3 million people were sent to the camp and 1,1 million were killed in gas chambers with the pesticide Zyclon B. Most of them were Jews but not only. The others were Poles, Russians, Gypsies and prisoners from all over Europe.
