What to expect

Visit Krakow-Plaszow, a former Nazi German concentration camp used chiefly as a forced-labor center, on a guided 3-hour tour from the center of town.

After pick-up you will begin your tour at the first stop in Plac Bohaterów Getta (Ghetto Heroes Square), where you will be introduced to the history of the Holocaust. From here you'll travel to the former Nazi concentration camp of Plaszow on the outskirts of the city.

During the tour will see the mass cemetery of unmarked graves, the outdoor exhibition with brief historical information and listen to the history of Nazi concentration camps during the occupation.

Opened back in June 1942, the camp was the main forced-labor camp rounded up from the general region of Kraków and later, for Jews from Hungary. In addition to the two Jewish cemeteries once located on this site, it is speculated that the remains of 8,000-10,000 Płaszów prisoners are still located within the area of the camp.

In comparison to other Nazi prison camps, Płaszów was extremely well dismantled and has been the subject of very little historical excavation or on-site documentation.
