Auschwitz is one of the best-known concentration camps in the world; it is a place of genocide where approximately 1.5 million people were killed during WWII. The place has remained a living monument to those that died during the Holocaust and in 1979 the concentration camp was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.  Your tour to Auschwitz-Birkenau includes a visit to Auschwitz I - the administrative centre of Auschwitz death camp and Auschwitz II, designed and constructed as an extermination facility.
