Majdanek is one of the many infamous concentrations camps of nazis located in Poland, it is located near Lublin. It was built in the 2nd WW to exterminate thousand of Jews. It was a horrible place, which is not too well known, but it was the first concentration camp liberated by Russian Army in the war. The place is very... More

Hard to believe that this concentration camp was created by the Nazis so close to the city. The Mausoleum, with the ashes of the murdered prisoners, the ditches where people were buried and the crematorium - I could not contain tears. The place is so much more interesting than overcrowded and touristy Auschwitz

It's a former concentration camp of world war 2. Entrance is for free. You walk about 5 kilometers throughout the camp with left and right exhibitions. It tells the sad story of the massacre of innocent people in Nazi Germany.

This was a must on our list of things to do in Lublin. Our 3rd camp visit in different places in Poland but we were very impressed with the layout and the fact that everything was written in English so we could appreciate and commemorate what went on. We always feel very humble and feel the need to pay our... More

I believe this is the most important place to visit in Lublin. This won't be nice experience but for sure you need to go there and see what happened there a lot of years ago.

Majdanek was a terrible place, a death camp where almost 80,000 people, around 60,000 of them Jews, were deliberately gassed to death. Although it is significantly smaller than Auschwitz, in some ways it's even more horrifying, because while much of Auschwitz was razed by the Germans and it now feels quite museum-like, Majdanek has been preserved in almost its original...

We visited both Auschwitz and Majdanek concentration camps and believe Majdanek has more buildings remaining to see and gives you a better perspective on history. Memorial is impressive. Remember to be respectful, shorts and bare shoulders are frowned upon. We visited in winter and spring, so if you want to get a complete picture suggest visiting in both seasons.

I was in a lot of death camp and places connected with death in Poland and all over the world. Majdanek is one of this kind of experience, you should see, even if it might be hard, but for sure it's thought-provoking. It's good to buy a small map (around 3PLN) to have some general informations and plan of this... More

I didn't know where our tour group was going the morning we arrived at Majdanek Death Camp. When we approached the huge stone carving I noticed a pit below it and the tour guide said that "yes, it symbolizes the thousands that died and were burried in the pits". It just so happened that we were there on all Saints... More
