What to expect

This tour is designed to show you the complicated heritage of World War II and its lasting impact on the area of Lower Silesia. You will learn about the inhumane system of forced labor and human suffering in the former concentration camp of Gross Rosen. Visit a mysterious complex of underground tunnels whose purpose still eludes historians to this day, and discover facts about German aristocrat Helmuth James von Moltke, who established an anti-Nazi resistance group.

After the pickup service from your accommodation in Wroclaw, you will head to the former Nazi concentration camp of Gross Rosen. Learn about the German state's machine of brutal forced labor and human annihilation. Visit the former SS Cantine building, field crematoria, and memorial site while taking some time to reflect upon approximately 40,000 victims of Nazi terror.

Next, you will visit the little village of Krzyzowa (former Kreisau), a symbolic place in different political and historic dimensions. Find out about the Moltke family, their impact on German militarism, and the resistance against national socialism during the war. The last mysterious legacy of World War II is the Complex in the Owl Mountains. The inmates, mainly from the Gross Rosen camp, worked in deadly conditions excavating the system of tunnels and shafts. Visit a part of the program in Walim, enter into the tunnels, find out about potential hypotheses of its purpose, see the guardrooms, and spacious hall excavated in stone.

After this intense and interesting tour, your driver will drop you off at your chosen location in Wroclaw.
