Journeys to Auschwitz-Birkenau

Every year, the Shoah Memorial organizes one-day trips to Auschwitz-Birkenau, the Nazi concentration and extermination camp where nearly a million Jews were murdered.

Shoah Memorial historian-guides accompany the trips, which are intended for all.

The Memorial offers the heads of local communities, institutions and organizations the possibility of including a journey of remembrance in an overall commemoration and training project, depending on their wishes.

The trips take place from January to March. The 2017 dates will be on this page soon.

Before the journey, participants may attend a planning meeting at the Shoah Memorial and take a self-guided tour, usually with an Auschwitz survivor.
