Ehdottomasti tutustumisen arvoinen paikka, ajatuksia herättävä ja surullinenkin. Suosittelen ottamaan opastetun kierroksen, opas asiantunteva ja osaa kertoa paljon myös nippelitietoa. Meillä oli erittäin miellyttävä ja hyvin ymmärrettävää englantia puhuva opas. Birkenaussa ei oikeastaan lainkaan mahdollisuutta olla varjossa. Tämä kannattaa huomioida helteisillä ilmoilla. Auschwitzissa hieman enemmän varjoa, mutta helteellä syytä sielläkin varautua ainakin vedellä. Kahvilatarjonta rajoitettua: vettä, virvoitusjuomia, pientä suolaista, hedelmiä tarjolla kioskissa, jossa voi olla ruuhkaisina päivinä jonoa.

A truly harrowing and eye opening account of what happened during and before the war. I do not have the emotional intelligence or capacity to even start to comprehend the monstrosities that happened at Auschwitz and other concentration camps across Europe. Our tour guide Anna was emotive and incredibly informative and I applaud her for being able to do this tour every day.

Visit postponed for a day (the day before)… We had to follow it in a language that was not ours, which unfortunately affected our understanding. Pleasant journey, very nice guide. On the other hand, feeling that the visit to the square with the official guide of the place was botched.
