Gross-Rosen Camp & Jawor Tour

2. Gross-Rosen Camp & Jawor Tour

During this trip you will get to visit 2 very unique places and experience the fascinating region of Lower Silesia. With its turbulent past, interesting culture and incredibly beautiful landscape, it is one of the most visited "voivodeships" (provinces) in Poland. First up is the Gross-Rosen Museum in Rogoznica – the biggest Nazi concentration camp in Lower Silesia, with particularly harsh conditions and tough labour in the quarries. The motto of the place was "Vermichtung durch Arbeit" (extermination through labour). Around 40,000 prisoners died there including Poles, Jews, Russians, French and Hungarian. The second part of the trip will be spent at the Churches of Peace in Jawor – one of the largest wattle and daub religious buildings in Europe, built in the old Silesia in the middle of the 17th-century. This place is a manifestation of the desire for religious freedom and a rare sign of Lutheran ideology connected with the Catholic Church. Situated outside of the city walls, the churches were made of wood or clay in less than a year and are currently on the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.

What people are saying about Lublin

Very nice trip. Highly recommended to everyone

We had a very knowledgeable guide (driver) on this tour called Martin and are impressively knowledgeable and skilled. We had a wonderful day and we all recommend a trip to beautiful Lublin and an otherwise dark and gloomy part of the history of the Majdanek Nazi camp. Horrible story which unfortunately is true, incredible enough. Highly recommend GetYourGuide to anyone who is planning to go here.

The young guide Jacob did anexellent job explaining useverything about the Camp and work and live conditions. Thanks to his dedication we were able to better imagine how our grand father resp great grand father lived the last year of his life...

Damien was awesome, he was really fun and knowledgeable. We had a great time, highly recommend this tour!

Very interesting Tour. Excellent Guide with a deep knowledge of history
