During that stay, I realised that Krakow it's a great destination, similar to any other European capital - a realisation that came as a surprise to me, so I made a list of 17 fantastic things to do while visiting Krakow. There, at number 7, you will find a suggested visit to the Auschwitz Concentration Camp.
A few facts about the Camps: Auschwitz was the largest concentration camp of Nazi Germany where 1.100.000 people lost their lives during the period between 1940-1945. Most of the victims passed away upon their arrival while others died due to the extremely horrible conditions, undernourishment, horrific experiments and extensive abuse. 90% of the victims were Jewish and the main cause of death the Zyklon B gas.
