My mission is educate. 

It is very difficult to get access to the museum at Auschwitz Birkenau. Departure from Krakow. The museum is under siege for several years. There is a lot of tourist traffic. The museum has become very popular and everyone wants to see this place.  The Crowds want to see this place ‘full of pain’ of memory. Auschwitz Group tours are the most popular, but for people who wish a different comfort of visit –  I recommend individual trips.

I have been organizing complex trips to the former camp in Oswiecim in many languages for years. I guide an organized groups which want to devote more time and order study tours. Study tours last two days usually and we usually follow an unknown route. Imagine that there are places and people in the world who deny the existence of this place. We educate and remember.

I organize flowers and candles too. For the ceremony.

27th of January. On this day in 1945, Soviet soldiers liberated Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest Nazi concentration and extermination camp. When Soviet soldiers arrived at Auschwitz, they found several thousand emaciated survivors and the smouldering remains of the gas chambers and crematoria after the Nazis had attempted to destroy evidence of their crimes. Approximately 1.1 million men, women and children were murdered at Auschwitz-Birkenau, and over 90% of them were Jewish. Today, we commemorate Holocaust Memorial Day on the anniversary of the liberation of this camp. We remember all the victims of the Holocaust and Nazi persecution of other groups, and those killed in subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur.

“Sonderkommando”

In August 1940, the first crematorium furnace was put into operation in the Auschwitz Birkenau camp to incinerate the bodies of murdered prisoners. From then on, the Germans constantly needed the work of other inmates to remove the traces of the mass murder in Auschwitz Birkenau. This is how one of the most terrible institutions in the history of the extermination site was created: the Sonderkommando.
Initially, only a few Polish prisoners worked in Auschwitz, on the crematorium furnace. They were referred to as “smokers”. They were not isolated from the rest of the unfortunates sent to Auschwitz. They were even allowed to send and receive letters.

The situation changed when the Auschwitz Birkenau concentration camp, initially intended primarily for Poles, was transformed into a death factory for the extermination of Jews and other groups. In April 1942, a permanent group of prisoners, “Sonderkommando”, was organized. The Germans chose mainly Jewish young, strong men from 20 to 30 years of age. The only task in the Auschwitz Birkenau camp was to help in the mass murder action. They were supposed to operate gas chambers, dig mass graves, and, after opening four large crematoria, incinerate the bodies of victims of German crimes. The group was isolated from the rest of the Auschwitz Birkenau camp. They had their own quarters behind the wall. The members of the Sonderkommando could count on better food and access to a washroom and cleaning products. SS men also allowed them to take personal belongings left by the victims of the murders in the cutting rooms of the crematoria for their own needs. Unfortunately, after a period of about three months, the groups were also liquidated to hide the terrible truth about Auschwitz Birkenau.

The first commando in Auschwitz numbered 80 people, all of them were gassed in August 1942. The second group, consisting of 150 people, was killed in December. “They also drank and gave vodka to the prisoners of this team. When the prisoners were drunk, the room was closed and cyclone B gas was thrown through the window, killing them, ”an SS doctor testifying in the post-war trial described in one of the Sonderkommando exterminations.

The work of the Sonderkommando in Auschwitz Birkenau consisted of 4 phases:

  1. transporting people to the gas chamber
  2. assisting in undressing, then fifteen minutes for a cigarette and a sip of vodka
  3. pulling out the corpses. A haircut, a tooth extraction, a corpse search.  Then loading on cars and carrying them to the pits.
  4. BURNING BODIES
